Holi 2024: Holi is around the corner and people have already started preparing for the festival of colours. Every year, Holi is observed with a lot of pomp and grandeur all over the country. Several traditions are followed while celebrating Holi. While Vrindavan observes Phoolwali Holi, the towns of Barsana and Nandgaon observes Lathmar Holi. Holi celebrates the eternal love and union of Lord Krishna and Goddess Radha. The celebration of Holi reinstates the fact that goodness always triumphs over evil.

Holi-special snacks and drinks are prepared during the festivities. While gujia, namakpare and rasmalai reigns over the snacks platter, thandai and bhang are the go-to Holi drink for everyone. Thandai is made with milk, spices and sweeteners. Often the ground paste of the flowers and leaves of the female cannabis plant is mixed with Thandai to prepare Bhang. Even though Bhang is usually consumed for its euphoric effects, it also has a range of health benefits.
