Love of Radha and Krishna


As per the mythology, the Hindu Holi Festival is connected with the celebration of immortal love of Krishna and Radha. Krishna complained to his mother Yashoda about the fairness of Radha, Yashoda told to him to apply colour on Radha and see the difference. Holi is celebrated in its full swing in Mathura, the birth place of Krishna. Today, the places such as Mathura, Vrindavan, Nandagaon, and Barsana are tourist destinations.

Colors of Holi


In the medieval period, the colors of Holi (gulal) were prepared at home from the flowers. These flowers were collected from the trees such as 'tesu' or 'palash'. These are also called the flame of the forest. As these are natural, these were very good for skin. The chemical colours used today are dangerous to the skin.
