The festival is celebrated every year in February or March and signifies new beginnings – leaving behind winter and welcoming spring.
In this joyous celebration of spring, people gather in the streets and play with colours, distribute sweets and dance together by smearing ”Abeer” or red vermilion powder and throwing colour and water-filled balloons at each other.
