A special drink called thandai is prepared sometimes containing bhang (Cannabis indica). For wet colours, traditional flowers of Palash are boiled and soaked in water over night to produced yellow colored water, which also had medicinal properties. Unfortunately the commercial aspect of celebration has led to an increase in the use of synthetic colors which, in some cases, may be toxic. All these synthetic colors can badly impact the environment as we notice during Diwali Celebrations.

What is remarkably same across the country is the spirit of Holi.... Fun, love and strength of relations marks this festival of colors... What more can be expected - when the people get a social sanction to get intoxicated on the bhang, open not just their hearts out but also their lungs. n no one is allowed to take offence.. 'Bura na mano Holi hai'

There is a Sikh festival of Hola Mohalla... Hola takes place on the first of the lunar month of Chet which usually falls in March. By a tradition established by Guru Gobind Singh, Hola is the masculine form of the feminine sounding Holi. The word "Mohalla" is derived from the Arabic root hal (alighting, descending) and is a Punjabi word that implies an organized procession in the form of an army column. But unlike Holi, when people playfully sprinkle colored powder, dry or mixed in water, on each other, the Guru made Hola Mohalla an occasion for the Sikhs to demonstrate their martial skills in simulated battles.

Temples are beautifully decorated at the time of Holi and many groups organize various programs on last night... Idol of Radha is placed on swings and devotees turn the swings singing devotional Holi songs and its been long time that I have seen this happening around... For new generation, its a best time of reunion...
