The entire world loves celebrations. A celebration is a method of expressing one’s happiness, joy and compassion. Every country has some specific celebrations covering the entire calendar. Holi is also one such celebration mainly celebrated in India.
The festival of colours- “Holi” is a unique identification of India that is famous around the globe. This is just because of its distinctive style of celebration. People celebrate this festival by applying colours to the faces of friends and loved ones.
This festival has a sequence of rituals that are followed by the Hindu community every year with great spirit. This set of rituals includes preparation, Holika Dahan, the play of colours, and visiting the houses of friends and loved ones.
People enjoy delight in sprinkling coloured water on each other by Pichkaris or pouring containers of it. Playing Bollywood Holi numbers and dancing on the beat is also a part of the culture. Amidst all that, people enjoy Gujhiya, Mathri, Malpuas, and other delicacies with immense joy.
Holi gets people close to each other and their religions. It brings happiness and joy to life. A sense of unity is generated in the hearts of citizens. Even enemies end up turning into friends.
I stop my speech here. I hope you liked my words. Thank you.
Good Morning to the Most Reputable principal and teachers and loved friends. Before heading ahead to my speech on the Holi festival I cordially welcome you all & I want to pay thanks for having me this great opportunity.
The culture of India is full of festivals and celebrations. Holi festival, also known as “the festival of colours”, is one of them. This festival falls between February and March. People celebrate this festival with great passion and enthusiasm. Children are the ones who await this festival the most.
The festival of Holi is celebrated for two to three days. Holi is a festival in which we forget our enmities and enjoy the festival’s spirit. Holi is named the festival of colours because people play with colours and apply them to one another’s faces to get coloured in the essence of the festival.
If we talk about the historical and spiritual side of this festival, it is celebrated in remembrance of a great devotee of Lord Vishnu, Prahalad, who escaped from burning to ashes when his aunt Holika attempts to do so at the order of Prahalad’s father. His father desired him not to worship Lord Vishnu. Holika Dahan is an illustration of that event and is a sign of victory of good over evil.
Apart from being such a colourful and interesting festival, there are multiple aspects of Holi that make it so significant to our lives. Holi gets people close to each other and their religions. it brings happiness to life. A sense of unity is generated in the hearts of citizens. All the enemies come to an end turning into friendship and brotherhood.
The name ”the festival of colours” is well defined as it fills people’s life with colours making them colourful. The entire country gets into a colourful texture.
On the other side, we can not overlook the downsides of this festival. This festival causes a waste of water which is a subject of concern for humanity. By adopting some eco-friendly practices, we can save water and can support our environment. The other thing to consider is that harsh colours can irritate and damage the skin cells of people. We should always use herbal colours and Gulals to tackle this problem.
To sum it up, Holi sprinkles love and joy. It brings peace and happiness to the lives of people. Holi signifies the victory of good over evil. This colourful festival unites people and extracts all kinds of negativity from life. But on the other hand, a natural resource, water, is wasted at a large scale on this festivity, So it this our duty to make people aware of and enjoy a nature-friendly festival.
This is what I wanted to say. Thank you for listening to my words, I hope you liked them.
