A Colorful Day of Celebrations!
Happy Holi Festival of Colors!
Holi is one of the widely celebrated festivals of India. It is not only a widely celebrated festival but is also one of the most ancient festivals of India that marks the end of Winter’s and the arrival of Spring. The first evening of Holi is known as Holika Dahan while the next day is called Dhuleti, Rangwali Holi, Phagwah, or Dhulandi depending on different regions. However, the celebration of Holi is not just limited to India as it is celebrated in several parts across the globe including the bay area too. (By Kashyap Vora of Republic World)
