Celebrating Holi Festival

"We may have different creed and faith. We may have different culture and festivities. But one thing that i learned most, is to respect each other's differences towards unity, peace and understanding."

Today, I am fortunate to have experienced a colorful and joyful celebration of the Holi festival in New Delhi. It has been celebrated by everyone who shared fun and laughter while playing with colorful powders and putting on each other.

Holi festival is also known as the festival of colors. It marks the end of the winter season and the beginning of the spring where they welcome the season with vibrant colorsalso known as the Spring festival. It is widely celebrated by the Hindus throughout the country and also in other parts of the world where an Indian community exist.

In this festival, people gather regardless of gender, age and social status. It is also believed to bring closer relationship between two different caste, as practiced on a recent past or maybe at the present time— the lower and upper caste system of India.
