Holi, which is predominantly a Hindu festival, is celebrated by people of other faiths as well. It marks the beginning of the spring harvest season in the country.

People celebrate Holi by tossing colours, water, and water-filled balloons at each other, and also binge on lip-smacking sweets and thandai.

However, public celebrations in several states across the country have been banned in the wake of rising coronavirus cases.
