Holi, India’s colourful and vibrant spring festival, is here. On Monday people will celebrate the Rangwali Holialso known as Dhulandi or Dhulendi. Rangwali Holiis the main Holi celebration. Holi is celebrated on the Phalguna Purnima tithi that started at 3:27 AM on March 28 and will end at 12:17 AM on March 29. Holi is incomplete without Gulal or the dry powdered colour or the wet colours, which are mixed with water. These days, most people go for natural and organic colours. Some also make Gulal with dried and crushed flower petals.
