RBK School Celebrating HOLI
March 26, 2018
Holi the festival of colours is celebrated all across India. Holi signifies the victory of good over evil and the arrival of spring after winter. It is also celebrated as the beginning of harvesting new crops for farmers.
The celebration starts in the evening before the day of Holi on a full moon night, which is also called Holika Dahan or Chhoti Holi. On this day, people gather around the bonfire and perform religious rituals by offering food and other crops in the pyre. The day signifies the burning of Holika (Hiranyakashipur’s sister) who sat with Prahlad in the fire to burn him but got burnt herself. The following day of Holi is celebrated with colours. On this day people smear coloured powders on each other. You will also find children enjoying Holi with water-guns and water balloons. Along with dance, music, food and drinks – this festival is enjoyed with a lot of excitement and pleasure.
Today Holi is enjoyed by all communities throughout the country. Keeping the festive spirit in mind this year Ramaben Babubhai Kanakia pre-primary school in Mira Road took the initiative to celebrate Holi with the kids. On this occasion, students enjoyed finger painting and smearing colours on each other. Meanwhile, the teachers briefed the students about the importance of the festival.
