Holi Celebrations @ Abhyaas The Global School

Holi is a festival of colours. Even the elderly turn into youngsters on this day as they forget their age and ailments while naughtily pursuing their targets to cover them up with as many colours as possible.

The gulaal used in earlier days was made from natural colours extracted from flowers, spices and trees etc and had medicinal properties beneficial to the skin.

Unfortunately, in modern days, the hazardous chemicals and substances used in Holi colours play havoc with our skin, eyes and respiratory system.

In the name of celebrating Holi, a huge amount of water is spent and even wasted. Playing wet Holi with water-guns or water-balloons can harm the ear. Water may enter the ear and cause itching, earache or blockage.

The next few days after Holi are spent trying to get rid of the unforgiving colours stuck mercilessly to the skin and clothes.

Inorder to avoid such problems, we at Abhyaas the global school celebrated Holi with a difference. Colours were used creatively. The tiny tots dipped their palms into vibrant colours of their choice and admired the way their own palms and those of their peers looked. Next, they pressed their palms and thumbs on a chart leaving imprints to create a beautiful and creative picture.

The kids played with colours but didn’t smear them on each other instead they used them creatively to create memories of a different kind.
