To celebrate Holi in the best of spirits, it is goodto put oil all over the body and hair. This will prevent any damage to the skin and hairs from use of harsh colours. The colours are also easy to remove. Use of natural colours is a good idea. Pass the message of celebrating eco-friendly Holi and save water.

Holika Dahan refers to lighting of bonfire on the eve of Holi. It symbolizes triumph of good over evil. The main significance of Holika Dahan is that it brings everyone nearer and promotes secularism. Differences are kept aside and people enjoy this festival with brotherhood and bonhomie.
