This Holi celebration is popularly known as "Rolls Royce Holi", as a vintage Rolce Royce is decorated with flowers and a throne is placed on top of the car, worshiping Radha - Krishna. Priest's stand alongside the throne and give "Prasadam" to the devotees. The procession starts from Howrah and proceed towards it's final destination in Barra Bazaar. It also consist's of other god's and goddesses and thousands of people playing Holi on the way.
This celebration happens two days before Holi. The organizers of this celebration are generally businessmen but the vibe is none less than Mathura. As the procession pass thorough some narrow alleys of the city, people come out of their home and play Holi. Some even through water balloons from the roof of their house, but its super fun.
