It also gives family and friends a chance to simply come together, enjoying a spirited "Festival of Colors" that undoubtedly lives up to its name."
The festival signifies the victory of good over evil, the arrival of spring, end of winter, and for many a festive day to meet others, play and laugh, forget and forgive, and repair broken relationships, and is also celebrated as a thanksgiving for a good harvest.
It lasts for two days starting on the Purnima (Full Moon day). The first day is known as Holika Dahan or Chhoti Holi and the second as Rangwali Holi, Dhuleti, Dhulandi or Dhulivandan. (ANI)
