Pyarke rang se bharopichkari,
snehke rang do duniya sari,
ye rang na jane koi jaatna koi boli,
aapkomubarak ho aapnokiholi.

Holi celebration takes place with lot of joy and verve throughout the country. The enthusiasm of the people reaches its peak and matches with the nature which is in full bounty at the time of Holi.
Holi is being celebrated in Indian since time immemorial but the popularity of Holi celebrations seems to be rising with every passing year and so is the level of hoo-ha. As no other festival gives so much liberty to the people to let their hair loose and enjoy their hidden crazy self.
Holi knows no bars, Holi knows no boundaries too. Across the world wherever Indians or people of Indian origin are present Holi is celebrated with gusto and bonhomie. People play with colours, light a bonfire called Holika and celebrate the victory of good over evil.
Well, the essence of any festival is to take a break from the daily humdrum of life and make it interesting. The other major intention of celebrating festival is to bring people together and generate a feeling of brotherhood and spread harmony all around.
So like all other Indians we also had our holi celebration on 25thMarch at Open Air Theatre (OAT). The celebration was  organized by IPG 2016 batch.
All the students of ABV IIITM Gwalior gathered at the Open Air Theatre and had great time together. Everyone was greeted with Gulaal on their faces! All had fun together. A DJ was also called up for brightening the event! Everyone danced on the typical holi Bollywood songs. Forgetting every sorrow in their lives, every problems and rivalries.
The best thing was a waterproof holi! Yes it was a holi free from water. Everyone co-operated  in that. Each and every student know the importance of water in our life and so there was no wastage of water. Moreover organic colors or gulaal was used to play holi.
All and all it was an environmental friendly holi celebration.  Apart from this  thandai and bread pakodas were also served. It was a day to remember full of memories and fun!
As said 'Bright colors, water balloons, lavish gujiyas and melodious songs' are the ingredients of perfect Holi… and it was a perfect holi…full of colurs and joy, filled with love!

Wish you all Happy Holi again!
