Voila, it's Holi!
I’m from the southernmost part of India where we don’t celebrate or play Holi. I haven’t played Holi in my entire life and in 2019, somehow, I got fascinated by the Holi festival and jubilation. It is not only that I haven’t partook in Holi celebrations, it is also that I haven’t even seen a celebration in person nor did I happen to hear Holi celebration planning in my city, let alone receiving an invitation. Holi is that uncommon thing in Tamil Nadu (of course the things are changing). So I searched where and when to celebrate in India. I was surprised to see the number of places where it is celebrated grandly and even more surprised to see the number of days /events it is being celebrated.
