Background: Holi is a festival of the beginning of spring. In most places it lasts for several days. People throw coloured dyes on each other, both in dry and liquid form. In recent times these dyes have been synthetic and sometimes toxic. This book promotes a return to traditional fun that also celebrated our connection with mother Earth. There are many stories of Krishna connected with Holi.
