festival has many purposes. First and foremost, it celebrates the beginning of
the new season, spring. Originally, it was a festival that commemorated good
harvests and the fertile land. Hindus believe it is a time of enjoying spring's
abundant colors and saying farewell to winter. It also has a religious purpose,
commemorating events present in Hindu mythology. Although it is the least
religious holiday, it is probably one of the most exhilarating ones in
existence. During this event, participants hold a bonfire, throw colored powder
at each other, and celebrate wildly.
