INDIA, March 18, 2019 (India): Holi is an ancient Hindu religious festival celebrated throughout India in the month of March. It is a celebration of good over evil, and the onset of summer all rolled into one. Legend goes that Holi also celebrates the immortal love of Krishna and Radha. People play with colors and flowers on this two-day festival across India, and this year it falls on March 21-22.
Vrindavan is perhaps where Holi is celebrated with the most gusto and fervor in India. The celebrations here are for the advent of spring bidding goodbye to the harsh cold winter season. People especially come together at the famous Banks Bihari Temple and smear each other in different colors while dancing to the tunes of the religious hymns. There's a Phoolon Wali Holi that happens where devotees are strewn with flowers by the temple priests and another unique celebration called the Widow's Holi where the widows are encouraged to play with colors.
