Pagwah (Holi) 
Saturday March 4th 2018: 6:30pm to 10:00pm 
Location: Valmiki Ashram
 
The festival of Holi can be regarded as a celebration of the Colors of Unity and Brotherhood - an opportunity to forget all differences and indulge in fun, love and peace. It has traditionally been celebrated in high spirit without any distinction of cast, creed, color, race. It is one occasion when sprinkling colored powder ('gulal') or colored water on each other breaks all barriers of discrimination so that everyone looks the same and universal brotherhood is reaffirmed. This is one simple reason to participate in this colorful festival.
