Festival of Colours at CEL, Kundapur

On the 2nd of March, the volunteers and staff of FSL-India’s Centre for Experiential Living (CEL) came together to celebrate the festival of colours – Holi.


Holi is a traditional Hindu Festival that celebrates the beginning of spring, as well as the triumph of good over evil. Holi’s different celebrations come from various Hindu legends.


On the 2nd day of the festivities, people gather around and throw colured powder in the air and at each other. Anyone at Holi is to be covered in the colours, in celebration of Krishna and Radha’s love. Furthermore, the powder also signifies the coming of spring and all the new colours it brings to nature.


To celebrate this great event, the volunteers and staff threw different types of coloured powders at each other and covered themselves entirely in colour.



The main colours are red, blue, yellow and green. These colours represent different things – the colour red reflects love and fertility, blue is the colour of Krishna, yellow is the colour of turmeric and green symbolises spring and new beginnings.



In the end, everyone was completely covered in colour, so that even on the next day they still had the remains of the colours on themselves. All in all, everyone enjoyed themselves and were happy to experience that festival together in an Indian way.
