Holi 2020 is not cliché anymore, buck up, and get ready to dive into colorful madness with me.
Let’s know a little about its history:
Antiquity of Holi
Holi is a massive celebration in India since times immemorial.
Here’s the answer:
This spendthrift insanity of colors dates back to the confluence of two ‘yugas’ - Kaliyuga and Satyuga. Although there are numerous references in the Hindu mythology behind the significance of Holi, the most prominent is the story of Hiranyakashyap and his son Prahlad that symbolizes the victory of good over evil.
Ah! The crux of any festival is to take a break from the monotony of daily life by adding a pinch of joy and fun.
However, the real deal is to forget all the grudges and relish the fun of togetherness.
Won’t you agree?
Now, when it comes to Holi, the major intention of celebrating the fest is to create harmony by bringing people together and spawning a feeling of brotherhood worldwide.
Want to behold everlasting memories while in the UAE?
