Holi – It is the festival of colours. Celebrated mainly in North India, the festival has an important religious significance attached to it. Friends and family gather together wearing white clothes and throwing powdered colour on each other. Sometimes they even use what is known as a pichkari to splash colour water on each other! But, what is off-season is this festival! It is celebrated in March and not in June! If you are in India in March, stay on for the festival!

In December last year, I visited Thekkady. This resort was so nicely decorated for Christmas that the reflections of the lights on the water of the swimming pool was breathtaking in itself. The colours were absolutely vivid and a myriad of them emerged when they touched the water. – Thekkady, Kerala.

The hues are a matchless pink. But it isn’t simply a clear-cut pink. Nature wonderfully brings with it a gradient from white to baby pink to a dark pink – so rich that it epitomises a kind of purity. A flower in all its beauty, blooming to the fullest. – Theosophical Society, Chennai, India.
