The festival of Holi is a true manifestation of dawn, light, life and a surge of energy. There are many attention-grabbing mythological legends associated with Holi celebration. Holika Dahan is one of it and the most popular as well which is celeberated as Chhoti Holi to memorize the triumph of good over bad.
Normally, the Holi lasts for about two or five days but at few places it also continues for sixteen days. On Chhoti Holi, bonfires are lit and Holika is offered flowers and coconuts but on the next day of the big fest Holi ( Dhuli Vandana), is celeberated with near and dear ones including friends and family.
The day of Holi starts with throwing coloured powder and coloured water on each other. Each person starts showing his exuberance by simply saying "Bura na mano holi hai" which means "Don't mind, it's Holi!" and does not even mind throwing water on the passers-by. People also dunk their friends in mushy pool amidst both laughter and teasing on Holi. And still if they are not gratified they prefer taking intoxicated bhaang and starts falling flat or create chaos with no idea what is happening around.
