Holi is being celebrated by Hindus all over the world as they immerse themselves in the annual festival of colour. The vibrant festivities are celebrated on Phalgun Purnima, which falls at the end of February and culminates in March.

The festival is fun-filled and high-spirited with participants covering each other with brightly coloured powder with the greeting of "Happy Holi” commonly used during the celebratory period. The celebration honours the triumph of 'good' over 'bad' with the colourful entertainment bridging the social gap between classes, age and gender.
