Holi Celebration at Papa’s home Posted March 18, 2014 by Suchan Budha



Children of Papa’s home enjoying ‘Holi’ which is a Hindu celebration known as the festival of color that celebrates the incoming spring. Colored water is squirted on passers-by, and people are dunked into muddy water. Many people consume bhang, an intoxicating drink made from the female cannabis plant. Social barriers are broken as people of all ages; genders, castes, and wealth gather together and celebrate the festival. In fact, it is said that one can get away with almost any kind of behavior on the day of Holi by saying “bura na mano holi hai,” or, “don’t mind, it’s Holi.”
