The day has finally arrived when people will paint the town red with gulaal, water balloons and pichkaris. It's Holi, you guys!! The festival of colours where people get notorious, friendly and happier by the hour. While the traditional Indian Holi is played with coloured powder called gulaal, people have invented many other types over the years. With the kind of chemicals and permanent damages that colours these days can bring, the mass is more concentrated on having a simpler, more eco-friendly Holi. And this is why, we're here to insist you on choosing to experience one of these this year.
Tilak Holi is the kind of Holi where you only stick to the forehead area of a person and not the whole body. Instead of throwing colours here and there and splashing water, choose to only opt for a simple tilak on each other.
Phoolon Ki Holi is strictly celebrated only with flowers and flower petals. This is mostly noticed in Pushkar, Lucknow and a few other places. What adds more drama to this celebration is when people dress up as Radha and Krishna for the festive day and shower each other with flower petals.
Waterless Holi is where there's no pichkaris or water balloons in the celebration. Since our country has been facing a lot of water related issues, it is wiser to choose only powdered colours and no water or paints at all.
These are a few eco-friendly Holi ideas that you can opt for this year. Trust us when we say this, it is a whole different enjoyment while you're at it.
