holi

Holi, the festival of colours originates in India. It is a Hindu festival (one of the many religions practiced in India) and is celebrated to mark the arrival of Spring and thanking the Gods for the good harvest. The word Holi comes from the word “hola” which means to offer prayers to the gods for good harvest. It is celebrated over two days and marks the celebration of fertility, colour, love and the triumph of good over evil. Coloured powders are used by people to coat their friends and family. This whole festival is split into two events: one being ‘Holika Dahan’ and the other being Rangwali Holi. To protect the cultural heritage of our nation, the university celebrate the “ Holi ke Rang Apni Pathshala Ke Sang” every year in the University Campus.
