Holi, the festival of happiness

You know it’s Springtime in India because the weather becomes warmer, literally overnight and Holi, the vibrant festival of colour begins. You don’t have to spend Holi in India to know what’s it’s all about, just watch any Bollywood movie where rainbow powder and paint is thrown everywhere and on everyone. Cue a smoothly spontaneous dance routine and you can’t help but smile. Unlike the observances¬†of other Hindu festivals, Holi is “played”, boldly and brazenly. And as with everything that colours the spirit, the lively celebration brings out the kid in all of us.
