Besides the colorful spraying of powder on the festival of Holi, this festival is also manifested by the exciting processions by the young. There are plenty of folk songs which are playing on the festival while plating Holi with the fellow friends. Dances are a norm on the Holi festival with symbolic representations of the mythology and history behind the festival. Not just this, the history behind the festival of Holi is also connected with the belief of the immortal affection towards the Krishna and Radha.
These days, the festival of Holi is just seen as a justification for the hindus to get rid of their differences in castes even if just for a day and let everyone enjoy the first day of spring.
