Varanasi: The festival of ‘Holi’ (Holi 2023), symbolizing the victory of good over evil, will be celebrated somewhere on March 7 and somewhere on March 8 this year. On this day, what is small and what is big, are all seen painted in the same color. People play Holi with a great enthusiasm with Abir, Gulal, and all kinds of colors.
At the same time, very beautiful pictures of playing Holi are coming out from Uttar Pradesh. People celebrate Holi with Chita Bhasma at Manikarnika Ghat in Varanasi, Uttar Pradesh. During this people were seen immersed in the celebration of Holi. Please say that people have different beliefs about playing Holi with Chita Bhasma at Manikarnika Ghat.
On the second day of Rang Bhari Ekadashi, Holi was played with the ashes of the funeral pyre at Manikarnika Ghat, the great cremation ground of Kashi, amidst the burning pyres, with the awe-inspiring chanting of Damru, Har Har Mahadev. There is a belief about this that Baba Shri Vishwanath himself reaches the crematorium to play Holi with his ghosts. Since then that tradition is still intact.
