Meanwhile, various political leaders, including Prime Minister Narendra Modi, also greeted the people of Holi.
“I wish you all a very happy Holi. This festival of joy, happiness, laughter and jubilation should infuse new vigor and new energy in everyone’s life,” tweeted Prime Minister Modi in Hindi.
Although Holi is a predominantly Hindu festival, it is also celebrated by people of other faiths. It marks the arrival of the spring harvest season to the country. People celebrate the festival by drinking excessively some sweets to lick their lips, thandai, and splashes of colored powder, water, and balloons while singing “Holi Hai.”
However, public celebrations in most states across the country have been banned amid the recent surge in Covid-19 cases.
