Holi - Look for Chemicals in Your Colours!
- 7 Months ago
Holi, the festival of colours, hails from Nepal and is largely celebrated in India. The festival gets its significance from an old Hindu story and is celebrated with colours to spread the happiness of the salvation of one of the mythical characters in the story. It is a traditional festival followed throughout our country and even in some parts of the world, and is a time to celebrate with family and friends.
Traditionally, Holi was celebrated with turmeric, kumkum, and bilwa and neem water. They didn't have any effect on health as such and was absolutely safe. However, today we don't really think of using natural colours because we have convenient options available. Though it's a traditional festival, the modern issues attached to it are many.
