Festival of Holi
Holi is a festival of color and harmony, which everyone celebrates with full fervor and joy, irrespective of religion. Adorned with colors full of love, this festival gives the message of brotherhood, opening the bonds of every religion, sect, and caste. On this day, all people forget their old complaints and hug each other. Children and youth play with colors. This festival is celebrated on the full moon in Phalgun. Many stories are associated with Holi. Holika is lit one night before celebrating Holi. There is a popular legend behind it "Holi Colours".

Most Famous Story Behind Holi


Devotee Prahlada's father Hariyanyakaship considered himself God. He was opposed to Vishnu while Prahlada was a devotee of Vishnu. He stopped Prahlada from doing Vishnu devotion and when he did not agree, he tried to kill Prahlada.
Prahlada’s father eventually seeks help from his sister Holika. Holika had the blessing of not burning in the fire. Holika agrees to assist her brother. Holika sat with Prahlada in the pyre, but Prahlad was protected by Vishnu's grace and Holika was burnt to ashes.
This story tells that good always dominates evil. Even today, on the full moon day, Holi is lit and the next day everyone applies gulal, abir and different colors to each other. This festival is a festival of colors "Holi Colours".
On this day, people wake up in the morning and go to their relatives and friends' house with colors and play Holi with them fiercely. This festival holds special significance for children. He brings a variety of squirrels and balloons from the market the day before. Children enjoy Holi with balloons and squirrels with their friends.
Everyone forgets hate and hugs each other. The women make sweets, ‘GUJHIYAS’ etc. a day before and share in their neighborhood. Many leave the Holi team and call them Huriyare.

Holi of Braj, Holi of Mathura, Holi of Vrindavan, Holi of Barsane, and Holi of Kashi Are Famous All Over India.


Nowadays good quality dyes are not used and skin damaging colors are played. This is completely wrong. On this happy festival, one should stay away from chemical paste and intoxication. Children should also be cautious. Children should play Holi under the supervision of elders. Throwing balloons from far away can also cause eye wounds. Colors should also be prevented from entering the eyes and other internal organs. 

Fun-Filled Festival Should be Celebrated Together.

   

Holashtak concludes with Dhulendi. What is love, whose is it...
To worship Holika, the place of Holika Dahan is purified with Ganges water. A stick is then installed at the crossroads of the area for Holika worship. Piles, wood and grass are put into it and piled up. Broken wood from the trees is used for Holika Dahan and some wood is added to this pile daily. On the day of Holashtak, 2 poles are placed for Holika Dahan. In which one is considered Holika and the other is Prahlad.
According to mythological classical beliefs, no auspicious work is done in the area where a stick is placed for Holika Dahan. It is bad to do auspicious work these days. This year Holashtak will be from March 5 to March 12. All auspicious actions during this eight days are considered taboo. Holika Dahan will be played on March 12 and Dhulendi on March 13. 

According to popular belief, in order to break his austerities, Lord Shiva incinerated Kamadeva on the Phalgun Shukla Ashtami Tithi. Kamadeva is considered the god of love, because his incarnation caused a wave of mourning in the world. When Kamdev's wife Rati apologized to Lord Shiva, Shiva assured Kamdev to revive. After this, people created a ruckus. It is considered one of the reasons for the end of Holashtak with Dhulendi.

The first task of Holi is to wear a flag or stick. It is buried in a public place or yard of a house. Near this is the fire of Holika. All these preparations start long before Holi. The first day of the festival is called Holika Dahan. On this day, Holi is lit at squares and wherever wood is collected for fire. It mainly consists of wood and cow dung cake. In many places there is also a tradition of burning Bharbholia in Holika. Bharbholia are cow dung balls with holes in the middle. In this hole, garland is made by applying rope of mustache. A garland has seven weights. Holi is poured around the brothers' heads seven times before throwing fire on Holi. This garland is lit with Holika at the time of Holika Dahan at night. This means that along with Holi, a bad eye is also lit on the brothers. Made of wood and dupatta, Holi worship begins at noon. Homemade dishes are offered here. Holi is lit on the Muhurta drawn by astrologers on autumn day. New crops of wheat and grains of gram are also roasted in this fire. The burning of Holika symbolizes the end of all evils of society.

Other works describe the festival called 'Rang', which includes Harsha's Priyadarshika and Ratnavali and Kalidasa's Kumarasambhavam and Malavikagnimitram.

Modern Color Festival and Culture of Holi


Holi is a festival of colors, a festival of laughter, but many forms of Holi are also seen. The prevalence of chemical colors in place of natural colors, intoxication rather than cannabis thawing, and the prevalence of film songs in place of folk music are some of its modern forms. But this does not diminish the pride of dhol, chajar, phag, dhamar, chaiti and thumari sung on Holi. There are many people who understand traditional music and are environmentally conscious. These types of people and institutions maintain the tradition of playing Holi with colors made of sandalwood, rose water, tesu flowers and natural colors, as well as contribute significantly to its development. After becoming aware of the side effects of chemical dyes, many people are returning to natural dyes themselves. The developed international form of Holi's popularity is also taking shape. Its usefulness in the market can be gauged from the new perfume Holi Hai released by the international establishment Kenozhamur on the occasion of Holi this year.

“Phalgun Ka Ye Pyara Sa Tyauhar… Ap Ka Jivan Khushiyon Or Rangon Se Bhar De… Holi Ki Shubh-Kamanaye.”
