Pushkar Holi 2015 – Festival of Colors

Get ready for festival of color on this 6th of November as it’s observed on the full moon day of Phagun (12th) month in Hindu calendar. It is one of the best occasions to experience Pushkar at its happiest. Holi festival is celebrated by Hindus across India and across the globe for the victory of good over bad. Come holi and the streets will reverberate with the chants of Holi hai…..People enjoy the day with colors, music, dance, sweets and “bhang”..!

There is also a tradition of consuming the very intoxicating bhang on this day to further enhance the spirit of Holi. It is so much fun to watch the otherwise sober people making a clown of them in full public display. Some, however, take bhang in excess and spoil the spirit. Caution should therefore be taken while consuming bhang delicacies.
