The Indian festival of “HOLI” is all about eating good food and playing with bright colors. Holi is a spring festival. It is also known as the festival of LOVE, festival of Happiness! I am away from home, and it’s been almost 10 years since I last played Holi. 10 years are indeed a long span of time, but I always try to make this festival special for my family—not with the colors, but with the colorful food.
A Holi without the sweet stuff (called ‘Mithai’) is incomplete! All of those who know about Holi would agree with me here!
