Holi is one of India’s most convivial festivals. Rightly called the Festival of Colors, it is when you will find people laughing, smiling, dancing and most importantly, trying to drench each other in various colors. While the best Holi celebrations are held in north India, Maharashtra too is a great state to witness Holi festivities. People meet with their family and friends on this day and great each other by applying powdered colors on their faces and foreheads. Festivities are often accompanied by music, singing and dancing. Some people even indulge in the delicacy named “bhang” which gets everyone in a happy and jovial mood. Holi 2018 is on March 2, which means it is just round the corner.
