Karachi, PAKISTAN: Pakistani Hindu women celebrate the colourful Holi festival in Karachi, 03 March 2007. Holi, the festival of colours, is observed by Hindus across the country and signals the onset of the spring season.


  1. Description from

    …In Maharashtra, Holi is mainly associated with the burning of Holika. Holi Paurnima is also celebrated as Shimga. A week before the festival, youngsters go around the locality, collecting firewood and money. On the day of Holi, the firewood is arranged in a huge pile at a clearing in the locality. In the evening, the fire is lit. Every household makes an offering of sweets and a complete meal to the fire god.

    Jeremiah 7:18-19 The children gather wood, the fathers light the fire, and the women knead the dough and make cakes of bread for the Queen of Heaven. They pour out drink offerings to other gods to provoke me to anger. But am I the one they are provoking? declares the LORD. Are they not rather harming themselves, to their own shame?

  2. Aaj ki holi me aapke sab dukh dard jal jaayein,
    Aur kal ki rangpanchmi k saare rang aapke jeevan ko khushiyon se bhar
    SHUBH HOLI :-)
