This week, the children celebrated Holi, a popular national Hindu festival which celebrates the beginning of Spring. On this day people gather, forget about their grievances, sing, dance and bring love to each other. Due to the situation concerts could not take place as they usually do in most cities, yet children had fun playing with colors, as they are believed to take all sorrow away and make life colorful. Happy Holi !
