Holi - the name brings in a lot of things in mind; pleasure of twiddling with colours, wishing each other 'Happy Holi' by smearing colours, gobbling a glass of "Bhang" and grooving mindlessly; are the fervent ways of celebrating this one of a kind festival. "Gulal" (dry colourss) - that's what we fondly call it, make it so special. It won't be wrong if we say that this festival has the power to change our mood and the overall atmosphere.
Holi: The Historical Connection:
The festival itself is an interesting occasion which exhibits diverse legends associated with it. Although there are different tales which make the celebration more reasonable; but its soul embrace is a solitary aim, that is to spread the message of love(by Radha and Krishna), happiness by the demolition of devil and rise of honesty(by Prahlad a devotee of lord Vishnu) and welcoming spring season(by Kamadev story).
Among all of them, apparently, the story of Radha and Krishna is the most famous one. It is believed that the devotee Radha had a very fair colour but Lord Krishna had a dull colour. One day Lord Krishna applied colours on her face to hide her fairness. And it is said that since then the day is celebrated with full enthusiasm and of course, with colours.
