The festivities officially usher in spring, with Holi celebrated as a festival of love.

A year ago, when we were trying to get admission for our daughter in the school in which we had enrolled our son, the principal was very confused to see the remarkably different names.Finally, Holika, Prahlada's evil aunt, tricked him into sitting on a pyre with her. Vishnu, the god who appears as an avatar to restore Dharma in Hindu beliefs, took the form of Narasimha - half human and half lion (which is neither a human nor an animal), at dusk (when it was neither day nor night), took Hiranyakashyapu at a doorstep (which was neither indoors nor outdoors), placed him on his lap (which was neither land, water nor air), and then eviscerated and killed the king with his lion claws (which were neither a handheld weapon nor a launched weapon).In the Braj region of India, where the Hindu deity Krishna grew up, the festival is celebrated until Rang Panchmi in commemoration of the divine love of Radha for Krishna.The frolic and fight with colours occurs in the open streets, open parks, outside temples and buildings.Groups carry drums and other musical instruments, go from place to place, sing and dance.
