NORWALK, CA- The Festival of Colors-Holi was celebrated on March 8 at Excelsior High School grounds here. Thousands came from all over California and other states to celebrate the festival and drenched themselves in deep devotional love and the festive spirit. Irrespective of color, race, creed and religion, all participants got colored in one color, the color of humanity, which has no color on its own,
Charu Das, Coordinator of the event and President of Krishna Temple, Salt Lake City, while talking to IJ, said these celebrations meant transformation. “We are not created on our own or by accident, but created by God with a purpose. The purpose is to love Him and other living beings and Holi focuses on loving God and His people,” he said.
Roshan Khandpur, one of the organizers, said Holi celebrations started in 1989 from Salt Lake City, Utah and this is the second year in a row in Southern California. Khandpur said all colors used here were purely organic and FDA approved.
