Marking the onset of the spring season, Holi is a festival of colours, symbolic of joy and victory of good over evil.
Even though Holi is a predominantly Hindu festival, it is celebrated by people of other faiths as well. It marks the arrival of the spring harvest season in the country.
People celebrate the festival by binging on some lip-smacking sweets, thandai and splash coloured powder, water, and balloons while chanting “Holi Hai”.
Coming to the ongoing World Cup, Team India will be facing Australia for their next clash on Saturday in Auckland. Till now, India have played four matches and got two victories and two losses.
