Wet Holi Photograhs 2012: The Colors of India

Updated on March 8, 2012

Today is Holi, festival of colors, now celebrated not only in India but all over the world. This festival unites each and every person on earth as it brings unity, love, and affection toward each other and humanity as a whole. So my dear friends, I wish you all Happy Holi. May you enjoy each and every moment of this most colorful day on earth. Just always remember to use very good quality herbal colors or wet water colors instead of chemical colors or grease that is used by some people. You must have heard about 140 kids from Mumbai, India who have used chemical colors which has infected them and they are having a multitude of symptoms including dizziness, diarrhea, vomiting, etc

Today, when I switched on the TV, I saw news from all over India where people were celebrating Holi of different types. Baba Ramdev was playing flower Holi with his fans and followers around the world. Some people were celebrating ladu maar holi in which a sweet is thrown on each other. The lucky ones catch this in there hands and eat it. I am planning to play gunjia maar holi. It is also a special sweet especially made on the occasion of Holi.

Some people in India celebrate latt maar holi where a lot of girls take bamboo sticks in their hand and beat their male partners with the stick. Holi is joyful and colorful.

Friends enjoy the true colors of life, be natural, use natural colors on Holi.

      Whenever you have a chance to visit Delhi, send me an email at rajsoni4u@gmail.com and I will tell where to visit to see the true colors of India. Next most awaited upcoming festival in India are auspicious navratras, Nav means nine and ratras means nights so we have 9 nights to celebrate with total devotion towards our religious Goddess Maa Durga. All the temples in India including Maa Jhandewali temple, Chatarpur temple, etc. are decorated with beautiful flowers to mark the beginning of fast and devotion. A dance called as "dandia" is played in several events around India, even it is celebrated in some parts of USA, Canada, and UK according to pics and emails received from my Indian friends living there. The navratras are starting from 23rd March 2012 and I will uploading pictures and videos from my visit to the temples.
