I want to name this festival through a very simple Hindi song and the lyrics are: –
“Holi Ke Din Dil Khil Jaate Hain Rangon Men Rang Mil Jaate Hain
Gile Shiqave Bhuul Ke Dosto Dushman Bhi Gale Mil Jaate Hain”. This means:
On Holi day hearts come together, and colors mix together, By forgetting our disputes and complaints, even enemies come and embrace each other.
As we all know the corona threat still exists. So better take care of yourself.
1) Always buy organic and natural colors
2) Wear old and ragged clothes that can be discarded easily after Holi
3) If you are traveling, keep the windows shut. It’s better to avoid traveling on the day of Holi
4) While washing colors, use lukewarm water and keep your eyes closed
5) Maintain the true spirit of Holi by celebrating it with your close friends and relatives.
