HOLI- The Epitome Of Unity And Diversity

 


It is the month of colours where all Indians together celebrate the  “United we stand divided we fall” aphorism. It is the mood of celebration and arrival of the summer with fresh strawberries, juicy melons and refreshing mint. The departure of winter marks the exit of a gloomy, dull atmosphere and the arrival of summer is the advent of festivals, especially for we Indians who are rich in culture and heritage. It is this festival that marks the victory of good deeds over evil.  HOLIKA (made with clay and hay) is the sister of Hiranyakashyap, whose idol is burnt just like RAVANA's is on DUSSEHRA. The HOLIKA bonfire is done everywhere, especially in the MATHURA and BRINDABAN where the victory of good deeds is celebrated with the defeat of evils.

It is “the festival of colours” where every human being gets to celebrate their excitement by smearing others' faces with GULAL. It is also known as "the festival of spring” as with the arrival of summer the melodious beauty of the mother earth with birds migrating from one place to their habitat takes place. Back in the 17 century, the harvesting of the crops used to take place in this month of spring in the fertile land that they own. Hindus believe that this is the time when they should celebrate the advent of the graceful summer and should forget the harshness of the winter. People celebrate this festival of colours and smear ABIR on each other's faces to show the happiness and excitement that they preserve for this festival since the first month of the year. Earlier Turmeric, NEEM, KUMKUM were used to make the colours that were skin-friendly and were hygienic. Cold drinks made with marijuana were used to make festive drinks to make the day amazing for all and the feeler used to come where they danced at famous HOLI TRACKS  like ”RANGBARSE BIGHE CHUNAR WALI RANG BARSE”.


It is the festival of RASH LEELA   which is celebrated in this form. The lord Krishna along with RADHA is worshipped on this day along with the GOUR and NITAY   as their servers. GOPIS played the real role by chasing the two love buds and how they helped them tie the knot was the real essence of RASH LEELA theory. Special cuisines like SABUDANA  PAYESH, special BHOG for the day is served in restraints available in GURUSADAY  STREET( park street). The BHOG  is served in such a way that the famous dish of the day will fall in direct contact with the spectator who has paid for the dish. The outmost food for the day is one glass of BHANG which is a delicious drink of this festival made with marijuana and sweets. 


Holy is considered one of the most fruitful festivals as it is the festival of love and spring. As we all know spring remarks the arrival of growth in the harvesting of the crop, is in the same way HOLI marks the arrival of love and affection among all the relatives and the Indians. In this diversified country of INDIA where people are divided into different religions, HOLI plays the key role as it marks the end of evil and triumph of good deeds. But in this race of humanity did we ever realise what will happen to the unfortunates? It is not only the country for we HINDUS but it is the world for humanity where human receives priority over the races.


Racism is the common political proclamation in this world but where there is unity there is a human being. It is said that the burning or rather HOLIKA DAHAN is a symbol of women's abashment but it is to be remembered that the goddess RADHA is the symbol of love and grace whom we worship in this festival of HOLI. GOPIS who assists her are also worshipped as the embodiment of love and beauty. HOLI is for all, including western and European countries. There is no stereotype that HOLI is only for us but it is to celebrate the victory of humanity and its good deeds over the evils that destroy the human nation. It is the human who decides to justify their destiny and festivals like DIWALI, HOLI are the ones that act as extravaganza parties which are for all. Thus we should urge our upcoming native Indians to break the stereotype and to bring forward their colours that paint the world of humanity with the colours of joy.
