All work and no play, makes Jack a dull boy. This proverb is the most relevant one to express how continuous work can turn us into a dull personality. This is where we find the importance of festivals. One such festival is - Holi.

Holi is the festival of colors. It is celebrated on the full moon day of the hindi month Phalgun which generally coincides with march - february of the Gregorian Calendar.

It is this success of truth and faith over envy and misuse that we celebrate in this festival. And the most vibrant colors are used for this. Rains of colors start the moment Holika is burnt. The next day is the continued color festival along with people sharing love, joy and yes, the mouth-watering snacks among them. Most renowned desserts are Gujhia, Malpua, and some salt snacks are among the foods exchanged and enjoyed during this festival. Bhaang and Thandai are some of the local drinks that are greatly associated with this festival. It continues to be so till in the evening, when everyone dressed in new clothes meet each other and wish a happy holi. This marks the end of the festival.

Even when we celebrate the triumph of truth and devotion, some people tend to disregard the decorum of the celebrations in having intoxicating drinks and drugs. This disrupts the dignity of the festival. We must thus make it a pledge to preserve the sacredness of this festival and pass it on to our generations with much enthusiasm and joy.
