On 29th March 2021, India celebrates Holi in a very different way. At Sai Deepa, we, ensure that the rules of the pandemic are not tampered with and keep it a very low-key celebration.
Holi is a popular ancient Hindu festival, also known as the "Festival of Love", the "Festival of Colors", and the "Festival of Spring”. It celebrates the eternal and divine love of Radha and Krishna. It also signifies the triumph of good over evil, as it celebrates the victory of Lord Vishnu as Narasimha Narayana over Hiranyakashipu.
Holi celebrates the arrival of spring, the end of winter, the blossoming of love and for many, it is a festive day to meet others, play and laugh, forget and forgive, and repair broken relationships. The festival also celebrates the beginning of a good spring harvest season. It lasts for a night and a day, starting on the evening of the Purnima (Full Moon Day) falling in the Hindu calendar month of Phalguna, which falls around the middle of March in the
Gregorian calendar. The first evening is known as Holika Dahan (burning of Demon Holika) or Chhoti Holi and the following day as Holi, Rangwali Holi. (source – Wikipedia)
