Holi, known as the festival of colours is also the harvest festival which heralds the advent of spring. It is celebrated to commemorate the Hindu mythological tale of Prahlada emerging unscathed from the flames despite being drawn into the fire by demoness Holika.
On the special occasion of Holi, the only thing one can hear loud and clear is people greeting each other with the phrase – Happy Holi.
From social networking sites to roaring voices on streets the only thing visible is happiness, joy and celebrations. Following are some pictures to show how India is celebrating the festival of color.
