Holi festival known as the Festival of colors, is a spring festival celebrated by hindu's. Freind and family sing ,dance and paint their faces with bright colors in this occasion.

 

Holi means that spring has arrived and winter has passed. It's also a day to forget all your problems and be happy - having color bombs explode everywhere makes things pretty and cheerful.

This is one of the most colorful painting which i finished today morning. Holi is a festival of colors in India which comes during spring/summer. I had taken this images of these kiddos long time back and i thought how about doing a series of paintings with the concept of Incredible India. When people think about India, its all about culture and festivals and not forgetting colors. So i did this on paper and next time im planning to do it on Canvas and make sure that maybe after few months i will have an exhibition of these colorful paintings. When i had my previous exhibition in 2015, i noticed that people like colorful images, kids, young or old. They appreciated my paintings allot. so im planning to do a series of colorful paintings which brings smile on everybody's face. I dont know how i did the colorful Sun glass, i feel its a typical North Indian Image. Holi is celebrated at places like Mathura, Vridhavan, Kashi and Varanasi and its a photographer's delight to capture the colorful faces. Photographers around the world dont miss the opportunity of capturing images during Holi festival.

Holi, or Holli, also called the Festival of Colors, is a spring festival celebrated by Hindus, Buddhists, Sikhs and others. A small Hindu community in Old Dhaka traditionally celebrating the ritual. Taken at streets of Shakhari Bazar, Dhaka, Bangladesh.

  

Holi of Barsana, the birthplace of Radha, a village, 42 kms away from Mathura, is of particular interest. Here, men from Nandgaon, the land of Krishna come to play Holi with the girls of Barsana and hope of raising their flag over Shri Radhikaji's temple. But, instead of colours they are greeted with sticks by the gopis. Hence, the Holi get its new name here-Lathmaar Holi.

 

Smart enough, men come fully padded as they are fully aware what kind of welcome awaits them and also the fact that they are not allowed to retaliate on that day.

 

In this mock battle of sorts, they try their best not to be captured. The unlucky one's however, are forcefully led away and get a good thrashing from the women. Further, they are made to wear a female attire and dance in public. All in the spirit of Holi.

 

Renowned poets like Surdas, Nand-das, Kumbhan-das and others have picturesquely described how Lord Krishna received similar treatment and was forced to don a sari and wear make-up and perform dance before being released by the gopies.

 

The next day, it is the turn of men of Barsana. They reciprocate by invading Nandgaon and drench the womenfolk of Nandgaon in colours of kesudo, naturally occurring orange-red dye and palash. Today, the women of Nadagow beat the invaders from Barsana. It is a colourful site.

 

However, in the interest of tourism and safety, the state tourist board has set up excellent vantage points for the public. A large open ground, on the outskirts of the town is specially set aside for the most magnificent display of the festivities.

 

The week long Holi celebrations also continue in the various Krishna temples on different days. The celebrations are filled with clouds of colours and of course, much fun.

Het Holifeest, Holi-Phagwa of Phagwa, Phagawa, Phaguaa is een Hindoeïstisch feest dat jaarlijks rond de maand maart gevierd wordt en in feite een combinatie is van een lentefeest, een feest van de overwinning van het goede op het kwade en een Nieuwjaarsfeest. Volgens de gregoriaanse kalender wordt het in het voorjaar gevierd en in de Hindoekalender op de dag na de volle maan van de maand Phaalguna. Naar deze maand is dit feest ook genoemd, Phagua/Phagwa. Op de dag van de volle maan vindt Holikadahan plaats. Bastantpanchami, Shivaratri, Holikadahan en Holi zijn hindoe-gedenkdagen in het hindoeïstische jaargetijde Basant.

Het Holifeest kenmerkt zich door dans, zang, versnaperingen en het strooien met gekleurd poeder, parfum (Goellaal) en ze sprenkelen gekleurd water (Abier)

 

Holi (English pronunciation: /ˈhoʊliː/) (Sanskrit: होली) is a spring festival also known as the festival of colours and the festival of love. It is an ancient Hindu religious festival which has become popular with non-Hindus in many parts of South Asia, as well as people of other communities.

It is primarily observed in India, Nepal, and other regions of the world with significant populations of Hindus or people of Indian origin. The festival has, in recent times, spread in parts of Europe and North America as a spring celebration of love, frolic and colours.

Holi celebrations start with a Holika bonfire on the night before Holi where people gather, sing and dance. The next morning is a free for all carnival of colours, where everyone plays, chases and colours each other with dry powder and coloured water.
