Celebrating Festival of Colors, Holi an Ancient Spring Festival!

The Festival of Colors is a celebration of love and inclusion—and a beautiful event for springtime.

This festival celebrates the arrival of spring and harvests to come, and the victory of good over evil. Although it is traditionally a Hindu festival, Holi is celebrated across the globe and is a great equalizer. Everyone is invited to participate, regardless of your religion and cultural background: It’s a celebration of love and inclusion.

On the day of Holi, we gather in their backyards, terraces, neighborhoods, or driveways to play Holi with brightly colored powders. In our celebrations, we set up tables with bags of colors and water balloons, pools filled with colored water, and water blasters or pichkaris. We party with upbeat Bollywood music, local brews or thandai, tasty mithais, and fun-filled chatter—all are essential elements of Holi!

I recently sat down with Women’s Day Magazine and shared more about the colorful festival and it’s importance in our culture.
