Every year, as the Winter snow melts away in the warmth of Spring, we're blessed with a whole gamut of colours. It's a time when people in various parts of world celebrate this transformation in a Festival of Spring Colours, Holi.
Though mainly Indian, Holi is celebrated beyond the subcontinent and has inspired many festivals and events in other parts of the world. People come together to spend time with loved ones and play with colours.
This year, many of us are still under some form of lockdown or the other, and perhaps won't get the opportunity quite yet to go out and experience playing with colours. But not to worry, we've got your back!
Join us in celebrating the Festival of Colours
by participating in our Colouring Contest!
