Any excuse to celebrate is good, the nature of the spirit is celebration.

Holi is associated with Mal Utsav (smearing of Colours). The Holika fire is burnt one day prior which signifies the burning away of what is old and worn out.

The Holi of Braj is famous all over India for its intimate connection with the divine deities and their love plays.

It is said that when Krishna was a young boy, he asked the reason for his dark color while Radha was so fair.

His mother Yashoda playfully suggested that he should smear color on Radha’s face too and change her complexion to any color he wanted.

Captivated by the idea, Krishna proceeded to do so and thus, introduced the play of colors on Holi.

Even today, Holi is one of the most important festival of Braj, where the men of Nandgaon and women of Barsana play ‘latthmar Holi’ in the remembrance of the playful throw of colors by Krishna on ‘Gopis’ and their resistance.

The festival of Holi has one eternal message, let bygones be bygones, bury old hatchets and start anew in the spirit of Spring. 

This Holi, let’s be a rainbow in someone’s cloud and let’s live life in full colour

Happy Holi!

May God bless you and your family with all the colours of joy, happiness, love, friendship, good health and prosperity & may you stay Blessed forever.
