Holi Celebration: A Sacred Festival Of Numerous Hues

An assembly was arranged a day before the Holi celebration within the bounds of Mentor yard. Children awaken to this celebration which signifies the triumph of good over evil & devotion to god.

In addition to marking the arrival of spring, Holi also celebrates for fertility, colour, love & fraternity. Children have exhibited the animated short story of Bhakta Prahlad on the digital screen at the assembly hall.

History Of This Epic Holi Festival Celebration:-

According to Hindu Mythology & Folklore, it is believed that there was once a demon king by the name of Hiranyakashyapu. He who won over the entire earth & was so egoistic. He commanded everybody in his kingdom to worship only him. But to his great disappointment, his only son, Prahlad was a vehement devotee of Deity Vishnu and refused to worship his father.

The demon king struggled many years in several ways to get his son to worship him. As all his attempts failed so he ordered his servants to kill his son multiple times but Deity Vishnu rescued him every time.

Finally, Hiranyakashyapu turned to his sister Holika. God had blessed her with a boon which made her immune to fire. So her brother asked Holika to enter a fire with Prahlad in her lap & was assured about his death.

As per the bad intention, Holika sat on a pyre and persuade young Prahlad to sit in her lap. She then ordered her attendants to light the pyre. It is a legend of how the wicked mind paid the price of her cruelty with her life. The sacred fire burnt Holika to death though she was bestows with a boon as she would be untouched by fire. It is her evil desire which nullifies her long-serving boon & let her die with misery.

The story as a whole is a testament to the power of devotion over the evil represented by the demon king.

Through the story of “Bhakt Prahlad” tiny minds imbibed how the burning of bonfire indicates evil power and was torched like the devil Holika.

Insights For Kids From The Holi Celebration:- 

This festival signifies the triumph of good over evil, so avoid mischiefs like throwing dirty water balloons or synthetic dyes/colours etc.

  • Organic Color:-

 Our future adults also learnt how organic and natural colours made from herbs or flowers protect the environment as well as skins & eyes. Kids should learn how to refrain from rubbing their skin too roughly.

  • Save Water:-

It times of water shortage, global warming and other such environmental changes when every generation learns about how to save water.

You can use water if you are playing in the garden so that there is no wastage of water. Throwing water on strangers is a complete NO.

  • Molestation:-

Report misbehaviour instantly and fearlessly as some people used this as an alibi to force physical intimacy on others.

  • Distribute Sweets To Orphan Kids:-

Distribute sweets such as gujia or rasgulla to any old age home or orphanage & celebrate the festival of happiness with them.

  • Soil Pollution:-

Holi is imperfect without those vivacious colours, then using flower is the best option. Those flowers will decompose in the soil and helpful as fertilizer.

How People Commemorate The Festival Of Holi:-

Holi celebrations which emerge with the burning of Holika on the eve of Holi thus culminates with a lot of funfilled activity and bonhomie. People cover each other in rainbow-hued powder to commemorate the beginning of spring.

We worship deities of Radha and Krishna and smeared with colours. People sing and dance around the fire & also perform parikrama of fire. Children have their water missiles, called pichkaris to drench the person from far and escape further drenching.

After a wild and eventful day, everyone celebrates in a dignified manner by visiting friends and relatives. People exchange sweets and hug each other conveying the warm wishes for Holi.


 The carnival is a jubilant occasion which we celebrate as festive of colour. Holi celebration is an approach of spring festival to say goodbye to winters. Now a day’s people have started using harsh colours made from chemicals that is why many folks avoid the festival.

Mentor school arranged the assembly in this sacred season of celebration to aware kids with the true spirit of festivity.
