Why Holi is Celebrated?
We all are well aware of “Holika Dahan Story” which signifies the burning of hateful and evil. Even today we follow that tradition in the form of ‘Holika Dahan’ to celebrate the victory of good over bad. The day after “Holika Dahan” , people enjoy the festival of Holi by wishing everyone “Happy Holi” with colors. Have you ever wondered why we play with colors on Holi? There is another mythological story behind the presence of colors in Holi festival. It is accredited that Lord Krishna once asked his mother about his dark complexion and Radha’s fair complexion. His mother in order to conciliate him in a playful manner told him to sprinkle any of the colors on Radha to match up. This mischief of Krishna emerged as a custom and tradition of coloring loved ones’ faces as a symbol of love and affection.
Mathura Holi and Vrindavan Holi Festival
Mathura and Vrindavan are the epicenters of Holi festival. Even today the people in Mathura and Vrindavan enact the scenario of Radha-Krishna Holi to feel the essence of love and devotion of these two legends. People gather at Mathura aka the land of Krishna to celebrate this colorful fun and frolic of Mathura Holi from around the corner of India and even from foreign countries to celebrate Holi in India. The Banke Bihari temple in Mathura is the biggest attraction for visitors during Holi festival, there is a custom of playing Holi with flower petals, abeer, and gulaal.

Play Safe Holi

Some indecent people harass unknowns and specially girls to satisfy their inner byplay which is not at all sustainable. This is definitely a sad Holi fact that people ruin the festive vibes because of their misdeeds. People must respect this devoting and loving festival.
