Holi is a Hindu festival celebrating the arrival of spring and the victory of good over evil. Historically, it is said that the throwing of colours over each other is a game the Hindu god, Lord Krishna, played with his consort Radha and the gopis, or milkmaids. The story represents the playfulness of the gods but also touches on deeper themes: of the passing of the seasons and the illusory nature of the material world.
Powdered colours are thrown and each colour has meaning in the Hindu culture. Bring the fun and festivity of this celebration into your classroom with Bollywood Infusion, Indian Instrumental Infusion , Classical Indian Dance or Rhythm of Nepal and India. Bollywood Infusion is available as a virtual program for remote or regional areas where presenter travel is not possible.
