Holi is a spring festival in India, also known as the festival of colours or the festival of sharing love. Holi is a two-day festival which starts on the Purnima (Full Moon day) falling in the Bikram Sambat Hindu Calendar month of Falgun, which falls somewhere between the end of February and the middle of March in the Gregorian calendar.
Holi celebrations start on the night before Holi with a Holika bonfire where people gather, do religious rituals in front of the bonfire, and pray that their internal evil should be destroyed as the bonfire starts. The next morning is celebrated as ‘Rangwali Holi’ – a free-for-all carnival of colours, where participants play, chase and colour each other with dry powder and coloured water, with some carrying water guns and coloured water-filled balloons for their water fight.
We at S.S. Rana & Co keeping in line with our traditions also celebrated this day with much enthusiasm. To celebrate this day an event was organized where our traditions and our rich cultural heritage were celebrated. After the small ceremony, all the employees, consultants, staff and paralegals assembled in a common ground to participate in the festival of colors, where participants colored each other’s faces with dry organic colors.
