Last winter I had gone to Jaipur on a college trip. While roaming in the streets, I saw very colourful and vibrant attires displayed on the show windows. Suddenly I saw a multicolored saree, which I thought, I, would buy it for my mother. I had never seen anything like this before. There were array of colours, all rich and vibrant like orange, green, yellow, red and green. The shopkeeper told me that all the colours are natural and this has been done by traditional methods of printing textiles in Rajasthan, known as tie and dye.

The saree really fascinated me and I bought it as a gift for my mother. Also, the design was, very intricate, colourful and attractive. When I reached home I gave the saree to my mother. She was very happy to get the colourful saree. Though she always wears pastel shades but when she wore this multicolored saree she looked amazingly beautiful as the bright colours complemented her fair complexion. I really was glad to see a hint of appreciation in her eyes.


Today, I am going to talk about Holi, a festival which his celebrated in India. It is also known as festival of colors. It is an ancient traditional Hindu festival that marks the first day of spring. It is celebrated by people throwing colored powder at one another.

The festival is a celebration of good vs evil as well as fertility, color and love. It is based on various mythologies including the burning of the devil Holika & the love story of Radha and Krishna. I celebrate this festival with my family & friends. I along with my friends visit each other homes, Markets etc. and apply color to each other. The markets are full of fiery red, yellow, green and orange gulal.

This is a time for people to get together & enjoy themselves. It is purported to be a time when friends, families and communities can get together without any concern for caste or ethnicity, Groups carry drums and other musical instruments go from place to place, sing and dance. It is fun and frolic festival that celebrates agriculture, harvest and the fertile land. The festival commemorates springs abundant colors and is a farewell to winter.
