HOLI

Holi is a colourful festival celebrated through singing, dancing, throwing of different colours at each other and relishing the different sweets. People in Braj called Brajvasis  form troupes and dance throughout the day and in the night; the troupes entertain the audience with various episodes from the life of Lord Krishna.

In some states, there is a tradition of breaking the pot full of buttermilk that is hung up high on the streets, with a group of boys forming a human pyramid, one of them breaks the pot and the womenfolk throw buckets of colour water on them and sing folk songs.

The Holi festival is mostly known in different names like Holika Dahan or Choti Holi  in different states
