The most colorful and vibrant festival of India - Holi - is marked with much fun and fervor throughout the country and other parts of the world. Celebrating the triumph of good over bad, this colorful festival falls on Phalgun Purnima, which falls at the end of February or in early March, as per the Georgian calendar. Songs, water balloons and bright colors are the major highlights of this vivid and lively festival. Bright colored powders, known as "Gulal" are smeared on everyone's faces accompanied by splashing of colored water. These bright colors are believed to signify energy, life and joy.
