The festival of Holi perfectly demonstrates India’s incredibly flamboyant culture. What started as a ritual by married women for their family’s happiness thousands of years ago is now a full-blown colour carnival biding adieu to winter and welcoming spring. The mythological episode of Vishnu devotee Prahlad coming unharmed out of the fire that burnt the wicked Holika propagates the usual message of good’s triumph over evil through the festivity. Though, it was Lord Krishna’s playful act of applying colours to his beloved Radha and her companions that continues to be the heart of Holi celebrations even today.
With Holi just around the corner, along with stocking up on tons of colours, water balloons and paints, it is also the perfect time for us to introduce some colour into our home. We think it would be great to give you some vibrant decoration ideas in keeping with the festivities to spruce up and add a colourful zing to your living space for the rest of the year.
