Jharsuguda: Holi, the festival of colour which is merely just four days away, Industrial town markets have started adorning a different look with herbal colours and “Pichkaris” (water guns) lining shops. This time, the Industrial town will be celebrating this festival of colours in a grand way with various socio-culture events.
The town is getting ready to celebrate Holi with “Holi Bash”, an event organised by Purple Events at Swaroop Garden, near Sarasmal. The Organisers are already upbeat about the event, which is being organized for the third time in Jharsuguda on 2nd March, the day of Holi.
“After the huge success last years, we are organizing the event for the third time. We are expecting a huge turnout this year. This year we have DJ, Rain Dance and Interactive Games for the visitors. Even the food served at the event will be keeping the spirit of the festival in mind. However, instead of the traditional bhang, we will be serving Chilling Thandai. We will not use any chemically laden colours as well, instead, we will be using Herbal Colours,” says Aman Tibrewal, organiser.
Similarly, promoting the use of chemical-free colours, Baristha Nagarika Sangh, senior citizens’ association, has planned to create awareness by distributing flyers requesting people not to use any harmful colours on this Holi.
