All regardless of their caste, color or creed celebrate the festival of Holi that brings together everyone and makes them one. Smothered with colors, soaking wet with dyed water and filled with joy, everyone celebrates festival of colors- Holi with great gusto. This festival makes everyone feel equal and the all inequality flows away with the colored water.
When people once again come together as one and leave behind old rivalries and rows, the magic of ‘Holi Milan’ conjures up love and brotherhood. This institution transforms many foes into friends. People smear colors-gulal and embrace each other as they greet Happy Holi.
Conventionally, on the day of Holi people drop by their relatives and friends. They exchange sweets and smother each other with colored powder-gulal. Every house has a plate- thali all set with sweet meats and tilak to welcome the visitors.
People greet each other by applying tilak on the other person’s forehead, they then offer sweets and embrace one another by extending the best wishes of Holi.
