Phagwah Festival – celebrations around the world

Holi (Dolyatra, Doul Jatra, Basanta-Utsav) is the Hindu festival colors that celebrate the triumph of good over evil, good harvest, and fertility.

Holi is the Festival of Color. Celebrated widely, Holi is a three-day festival symbolizing the beginning of spring. Holi is mentioned as far back as the seventh century, where the festival is described in many Sanskrit texts and alluded to in the play “Ratnavali.”

Phagwah is the other name of this holiday. In South India, it is called Bhojpuri. This holiday symbolizes the victory of good over demonic forces, the victory of light over darkness. All India is drowned in the paint because of Indian celebrations with colored powder.
