is a traditional spring festival practised by the Indian and Nepal community in celebration of the colours of life and the joys of sharing love.
January 21, 2017 - Over the weekend, MMU’s Indian Cultural Society put together a little celebration of the festival, Holi. Typically people gather together the morning after ceremonial rituals take place and celebrate the win of good vs. evil by playing, chasing and colouring each other with dry powder and coloured water. This celebration is also known as the Rangwali Holi. Although it is predominantly a religious celebration, global citizens have caught on to the celebration of colours and have been organising their very own little celebrations where they are.
Directed by Jegathesh Supramaniam, the Holi Fest was further ignited with performances by our very own MMU student Veera as well as the Double D Dancers. As the morning progressed, the electric music courtesy of the DJ’s and the continuous flow of coloured powder coupled with the endless energy from the crowd made the end of the event one that was bitter indeed. I must say that the days spent scrubbing off colour from our skins didn’t bother me one bit following the joy that Holi brought.
