Bishwa Nath Singh :
Lathi mar Holi is very popular in Barsane -birth place of Radha Rani.One can have glimpse of it in the above picture.. Holi for a week well in advance of the actual date of Holi is joyfully celebrated in Braja, especially at Varsana, Nandag...ram and Dauji. In Varsana the festival includes colorful processions with music, song, dance, and some boisterous scenes around the temples same time as Gaura Purnima. To celebrate Holi in the land of Krishna’s birth is an experience of a lifetime. While the rest of the country celebrates Holi only for one day, the streets of Mathura and Vrindavan are alive with colours, raas lilas and devotional fervour for a whole week. The pre-Holi festivities begin at the Gulal Kund in Braj. Situated near the Govardhan parbat, this beautiful little lake becomes the place for re-enactments of scenes from Krishna’s life by little boys and girls. Every temple celebrates Holi on a different day of the week and in a distinct manner. Not to be missed are the ceremonies at the Bankey Bihari temple in Vrindavan. The priests throw coloured water and marigold garlands into the surging crowd while it plunges forward to get a glimpse of their beloved Lord. For the entire week of Holi celebrations, Krishna’s birthplace comes alive with gulal-playing in the streets, exuberant pageants, raas lila festivals and singing contests. Little children dress up as Radha Krishna and enact scenes from Krishna’s life in Gokul The adventurous should head to Nandgaon-Barsana for the truly unique Latthmar Holi experience. The women of these towns, armed with latthis, embark on a mission to ‘capture’ as many men as possible. The men only have leather dhaals and padded clothing to protect them. It is in remembrance of the time when Krishna tried to sneak into Gokul to smear rang on Radha and her sakhis came together to teach him a lesson.It's a very joyful festival.Let us join to move to Braj Bhumi and celebrate colourful Holi there with great festivity!

....Harsh R Shah Nice 1 !!

Radha Chaudhary :
Aya holi ka tyohar mâché Rangoon ki bauchar.....

Bishwa Nath Singh In fact ,the holy week associated with the festival of Holi- festival of colors has already begun from yesterday in Braj Bhumi-the places associated with the Birth of Lord Krishna where he had spent His childhood and enjoyed thoroughly ...playing Holi with Radha Rani and other Gopies with gaiety .One can have glimpse as how this great festival of joy is celebrated where local musicians like us keep on moving from one place to another singing devotional Holi songs by beating of drums and smearing Gulal( red powder prepared out of dry flowers) on the face of others.


Bishwa Nath Singh:
Holi is festival of joy where every body enjoy throwing color on others and singing Holi devotional song.It was one festival that was very much liked by Lord Krishna who use to pay Holi with Gopies with great festivity.

Holi is a very carefree festival that’s great fun to participate in if one does not mind getting wet and dirty. He/she will end up completely drenched in water with color all over his/her skin and clothes.One can see as how young girls were drenched with colored water on the eve of Holi.

.Ranu Sharma I loved the line that....was very much liked by Lord Krishna...
