India's spring festival, the "festival of colors" is all set to start from Monday (13th Mar'17). Its a national holiday and everybody from various spheres of the society will play Holi to mark the victory of good over evil, the arrival of spring, end of winter, and for many a festive day to meet others, play and laugh, forget and forgive. This Hindu festival is celebrated at the approach of the spring equinox on full moon day. Holi celebrations start on the night before Holi with a Holika bonfire where people gather, do religious rituals in front of the bonfire, and pray that their internal evil should be destroyed as the bonfire starts. The next morning is celebrated with colours, when people greet their friends n relatives with colors.

Happy Holi to you. To be very honest I hate this festival. The reason, most of them are not aware about the exact theme about the festival but just busy on playing colours and throwing waters. Children started to throw waters on pedestrians already and it really become a nuisance. Just imagine, when you are rushing to office and get wet with these naught children.
