By nature, man likes enjoyment. Holi is a very important festival among the Hindus celebrated in India. It is an expression of joy and is celebrated at the end of the winter season and the beginning of the spring with great joy and enthusiasm. It is the most colourful festival. People spray coloured water or throw colour on one another and sing songs of joy. Elderly relatives are greeted with respect, while youngsters are busy with liquid colour.
Holi is celebrated in honour of Lord Krishna. Religious minded people visit Mathura and Vrindavan. In ancient times, people were very much troubled by a demon and they went to Lord Krishna for help. Krishna fought the demon single handed and killed him. Some people also say that this festival is celebrated in honour of Bhakt Prahlad.
The day of Holi is spent in great joy and delight Farmers bring in new crops. Old enmities are forgotten and new friendships are made. People take sweets and food together. Some people, however, misuse this occasion by using permanent colours, clay from gutters and indulging in the singing the immoral songs. These people should be forced by the society to give up these indecent activities and celebrate the festival with an open, joyful heart.
