Holi “Festival Of Love” 11th March 2020


Holi “Festival Of Love”
Come Join Our Volunteer Program & Enjoy HOLI ! Festival of LOVE !
Beating drums, colors soaring higher than birds, people sharing sweets, that’s the general scenario if you land between February and March in India. As that’s the time when the whole India warmly welcomes spring and celebrates Holi. The over brimming joy of togetherness makes everyone flush with happiness. Part of which is due to the relief from the humdrum and monotony of everyday existence.
Holi is considered as one of the most revered and celebrated festivals of India and it is celebrated in almost every part of the country. It is also sometimes called as the “festival of love” as on this day people get to unite together forgetting all resentments and all types of bad feeling towards each other. The great Indian festival lasts for a day and a night, which starts in the evening of Purnima or the Full Moon Day in the month of Falgun. It is celebrated with the name Holika Dahan or Choti Holi on first evening of the festival and the following day is called Holi. In different parts of the country it is known with different names.

The vibrancy of colors is something that brings in a lot of positivity in our lives and Holi being the festival of colours is actually a day worth rejoicing. Holi is a famous Hindu festival that is celebrated in every part of India with utmost joy and enthusiasm.
The festival of colors is celebrated on the full moon day in the month of Phagun as per the Hindu calendar. It generally corresponds to the month of March in the English Calendar. In 2020, the great Indian festival falls on 10th & 11TH March .
According to some legends, it is celebrated as a divine connection of love between Lord Krishna and Radha. Therefore, people re-enact the fun-play of these divine lovers.
Holi celebrations start on the night before Holi with a Holika Dahan where people gather, perform religious rituals in front of the bonfire, and pray that their internal evil be destroyed the way Holika, the sister of the demon king Hiranyakashipu, was killed in the fire. The next morning is celebrated as Rangwali Holi – a free-for-all festival of colours,where people smear each other with colours and drench each other. Water guns and water-filled balloons are also used to play and colour each other.
The frolic and fight with colours occurs in the open streets, open parks, outside temples and buildings. Groups carry drums and other musical instruments, go from place to place, sing and dance. People visit family, friends to throw coloured powders on each other, laugh and gossip, then share Holi delicacies, food and drinks.Some customary drinks include bhang (made from cannabis), which is intoxicating.In the evening, after sobering up, people dress up and visit friends and family.It symbolizes the triumph of good over evil. According to legends, the demon king Hiranyakashyap had conspired with his sister Holika to kill his son Prahlad for him being a big follower of Lord Narayana. However he was not successful in his mission. His son was saved by the grace of God whereas his sister was consumed by the fire.
All the people participate to light the fire. A pot of new barley seeds is kept under the pyre. When the fire burns out, these seeds are consumed by the people. Often predictions are made about the future harvest on the basis of the condition of seeds or the direction of the flames. The ashes of this fire are considered very auspicious and often either the ashes or the smoldering fragments of wood are taken back home. They light their fires at home with these embers and keep the ashes which they believe will protect them against diseases.

Holi Celebration

On the day of the festival, the air of almost every town is dipped in various colors like gulaal. Youngsters apply it on each other and on the feet of the elders of the family. Pichkaris (water guns) of various shapes and sizes crowd the markets. The sight of everybody pouring color on each other and whole heartedly participating in the mirth makes a perfect picture of happiness.
The delights of sweets like Gujiya, mathri and laddoos are associated with the festivities. Bhang or Cannabis in drink form is also consumed by the people. In fact, on the banks of the River Ganges, people sit drenched in colors and prepare the drink and this has a very intoxicating effect. The frolic and fight with colours occurs in the open streets, open parks, outside temples and buildings. Groups carry drums and other musical instruments, go from place to place, sing and dance.

Volunteer Travel Explore!!!

“Some travel to see the difference others travel to make the difference”

“Those who travel broaden their horizons. Those who volunteer and travel broaden the horizon of others.” In this post,I would like to highlightthe benefits of travelling. Travelling opens the doors of the mind, the routes of the heart and keeps the spirit of young alive while we get more richer, in terms of experience.
India is a Great Value Destination. One can travel as cheaply or as lavishly as one wants in India, and that's definitely part of its appeal as a tourist destination.India is a land of rich heritage.“Athithi Devo Bhava” meaning “Guest is God” is the ancient Indian tradition of welcoming the guest as God.It has stayed alive despite the countless changes our country has gone through.

Reasons why one should travel to India:
·         Indian Hospitality
Perhaps one thing that is going to touch you deeply on your Indian tour is the warm hospitality of Indians. We strongly believe in “VasudhaivKutmbkam”which means the world is one family. A ready smile on the face and always willing to go out of the way to help somebody are some of the common traits you will find in people here.
·         Explore Spirituality
You would be surprised to know that several of the world's major religions were born in India, including Hinduism, Sikhism, Buddhism, and Jainism. Indian spiritual experiences are like no other in the world. People come from all over the world to experience India's heart of spirituality, diversity and community.
·         Indian Architecture
India has been a land of architectural marvels.India boasts of architectural diversity like no other country in the world. The diversity of Indian culture is represented in its architecture.Taj Mahal, one of the most beautiful monuments and one of the seven wonders of the world is located in India.
·         Indian Food
If you are a food enthusiast you need to look no further. The term "Indian food" covers a lot of territory. Indian cuisine consists of a wide variety of regional and traditional cuisines native to the Indian subcontinent. Indian cuisine reflects an 8,000-year history of various groups and cultures interacting with the Indian subcontinent, leading to diversity of flavours and regional cuisines found in modern-day India.India's regional and cultural diversity reflects beautifully in its food and is possibly the main reason why Indian food outranks that of other countries.
