Every year, at the beginning of Spring in India, is the Holi Festival, also known as Festival Of Colours.
Holi has a long tradition which lies deeply in Hinduism. Every region of the country celebrates holi with splash of neon bright colours.
Holi signifies the victory of good over evil, and the vibrant colours have a great significance where people display their joy with friends and relatives, colouring their lives in their most favourite colour.
