Holi is the Indian festival of colours celebrating the onset of the spring season.Its time to spread joy, colour and love with great zest and verve. This year the
festival falls on Friday, 2 March 2018. In some parts of India, it is a much bigger event, celebrated over many days before and after the Holi day.
While this is an immensely enjoyable and colorful festival involving religious rituals, applying dry wet colors to each other, eating, drinking merry
making, it is important to be advised that during the celebrations some unpleasant situations can develop like:-
-Applying colors forcibly to persons unwilling to participate in the festival.
-Using toxic colors/ synthetic dyes/ paints causing skin allergies,rashes and eye problems, children are particularly vulnerable to these.
– Tendencies to take liberties with women.
– People may force to drink liquor/ locally made drinks (BHANG).
– Getting drunk and creating embarrassing situations.
You are advised to:-
– Restrict movements till around 3 pm.
– Apply a thick layer of moisturizer, petroleum jelly or coconut oil on your face and other exposed parts to prevent dyes and colours from coming into direct contact with your skin.
– Oil your hair well so that residue from the dyes does not get stuck to your hair and scalp.
– Wear clothes with long sleeves and full length bottoms to protect your skin.
– Stay away from intoxicants, such as bhang especially pregnant or nursing ladies.
– If you wish to play Holi, do so only with friends, family and known persons. Don’t allow group of people/ unknown people.
