Holi, often dubbed as a festival of colors is a tradition celebrated by the Hindus.
The story behind the Holi Festival is that there was a king, Hiranya Kashyap who had a son Prahlad, a holy spirit highly devoted to god. Prahlad’s devotion was a cause of frustration for the King Hiranya Kashyap. He eventually planned to kill his own son. He asked his sister Holika, who was not affected by fire, to sit in the fire with Prahlad in her lap, but due to his devotion Prahlad was saved and Holika was burnt to ashes.
Holi is celebrated all over India. Naturally the students of IFIM College also celebrated Holi at the IFIM Hostel. It was very well planned. By 9 o’ clock all students were called to the IFIM Hostel ground where everyone played Holi with Gulal and wished each other. The environment was filled with love and happiness. The students danced on some famous Holi Songs as they enjoyed celebrating with their friends. Holi is a celebration of togetherness. The students even splashed mud on their friends along with the popular phrase “Bura na mano Holi hai”. Nobody seemed to care as they were all having fun.
The students enjoyed a lot, as it was fun celebrating Holi with all our college friends. Holi is truly a festival which frames the colors and moods of life into a canvas.
