Holi (also called Holaka or Phagwa) is an annual festival celebrated on the day after the full moon in the Hindu month of Phalguna (early March). It celebrates spring, commemorates various events in Hindu mythology and is time of disregarding social norms and indulging in general merrymaking
Holi is probably the least religious of Hindu holidays. During Holi, Hindus attend a public bonfire, spray friends and family with colored powders and water, and generally go a bit wild in the streets. Originally, Holi was an agricultural festival celebrating the arrival of spring
This aspect still plays a significant part in the festival in the form of the colored powders: Holi is a time when man and nature alike throw off the gloom of winter and rejoice in the colors and liveliness of spring
Please be advised our "Holi Celebrations" scheduled for this Sunday 15th March 2020 from 1- 4 PM at Mandal Premises, Bayswater has been cancelled.
Acknowledge our numbers are usually less than the magical 500 but given the inherent risk of Corona Virus and as more of a precautionary measure, we have cancelled our event.
