During the Holi festival, people throw colorful powder at each other and powder each other with it. The differences between religion or heritage are then no longer visible (after all, everyone is colored by all the colors of the powder); social boundaries between social strata, young and old, rich or poor, fall away. On this day all people are equal. Cultural richness, joy, mutual respect and tolerance make the Holi celebration unforgettable every year. During Holi, people laugh, sing, eat and dance together!
