Even with the Covid-19 cases in the country resurging, many people across states were seen on roads to mark the Holi celebrations on Monday.
Despite restrictions on mass gatherings as India’s Covid-19 tally has gone up to 12 million, devotees were seen in large numbers at the Banke Bihari Temple in Uttar Pradesh's Vrindavan, according to news agency ANI.

Several political leaders and actors also took to social media sites to extend Holi greetings. While requesting citizens to ensure safe festival celebrations, many of them also posted pictures and videos with their families.
