Holi (होली), is a religious spring festival celebrated by Hindus. Holi is also
known as festival of Colors. It is primarily observed in India, Nepal, Pakistan,
and countries with large Indic diaspora populations following Hinduism, such as Suriname, Malaysia, Guyana, South Africa, Trinidad, United Kingdom, United States, Mauritius, and Fiji.This festival is now generally celebrated in the
whole world. In West Bengal
and Orissa of India it is known as
Dolyatra (Doul Jatra) (Bengali: দোলযাত্রা), or Basanta-Utsav ("spring festival")(Bengali: বসন্তোৎসব), . The most celebrated Holi is that of
the Braj region, in locations connected to
the Lord Krishna: Mathura,
Vrindavan, Nandagaon, and Barsana. These places have become tourist destinations
during the festive season of Holi, which lasts up to sixteen days.
The main day, Holi, also known as Dhuli in Sanskrit, also
Dhulheti, Dhulandi or Dhulendi, is celebrated by people
throwing coloured powder and coloured water at each other. Bonfires are lit on
the eve of the festival, also known as Holika Dahan (burning of Holika) or Chhoti Holi (little Holi). After doing
holika dalhan prayers are said and praise is offered. The bonfires are lit in
memory of the miraculous escape that young Prahlad accomplished when Demoness Holika, sister of Hiranyakashipu, carried him
into the fire. Holika was burnt but Prahlad, a staunch devotee of god Vishnu, escaped without any injuries due to
his unshakable devotion. Holika Dahan is referred to as Kama Dahanam in
Holi is celebrated at the end of the winter season on the last full moon day
of the lunar month Phalguna
(February/March), (Phalgun Purnima), which usually falls in the later part of
February or March. In 2009, Holi (Dhulandi) was on March 11 and Holika
Dahan was on March 10. In 2010, Holi was on March 1 and Holika Dahan was on
February 28. In 2011, Holi was on March 20 and Holika Dahan was on March 19.
Rangapanchami occurs a few days later on a Panchami (fifth day of the
full moon), marking the end of festivities involving colours.
