HTCC Holi Celebrations
Event Image
Synopsis
Holi is traditionally observed all over India during the month of Phalguna(the last month in Hindu Calendar), before the onset of Spring. The festival of Holi can be regarded as a celebration of the Colors of Unity & Brotherhood - an opportunity to forget all differences. It has traditionally been celebrated in high spirit without any distinction of cast, creed, color or status. It is an occasion when sprinkling colored powder or colored water on each other breaks all barriers of discrimination so that everyone looks the same and universal brotherhood is reaffirmed. This is one simple reason to participate in this colorful festival
