Holi Essay 1 (100 words)


Holi is the most famous festival of colours. It is celebrated every year in the month of
Falgun (March) by the people of Hindu religion. It is celebrated with great joy and
enthusiasm as it brings feeling of love and closeness among people. Colourful colours
are spread out by the people over each other. At this day we meet each other,
handshake, hug and apply abeer on the forehead to each other. We sing religious songs
(or Fagua geet) with musical instruments like Dholak, Kirtal, etc. At this special day we
eat special things like gujhiya, sweets, chips, papad, halwa, pani puri, dahi bade, etc. A
day before the colourful holi, Holika Dahan takes place.

Holi is the widely celebrating festival of the year just like Diwali by the Hindus. Every

spring season too. There is a great history and significance of celebrating this holi
festival every year. Long years ago, there was a Holika, a devil sister of devil
Hiranyakashyap who tried to burn Prahlad (son of her brother) in the big fire by taking
him in her lap. Prahlad was a true devotee of God who was saved from fire by the God
however Holika was burnt and changed to ashes. From then, Hindu people celebrate the
victory of goodness over the devil power every year as a festival of holi.
It is a public holiday when all the banks, schools, colleges, offices and other institutions
are closed. We celebrate this festival very happily by spraying colourful colours to each
other in the morning. Generally, people celebrate holi for the whole day and come to

Holi is a festival of colors celebrated every year on a full moon


day in the month of March (or Falgun). It is also known as the
festival of love, joy, happiness, unity, renewal and triumph. We
celebrate holi with vibrant colours indicating joy, love and
happiness to each other. Behind celebrating the holi festival
there is a great reason, legends, beliefs and significance.
A long ago, there was a king, Hiranyakashyap, his sister, Holika
and son, Prahlad.

Prahlad was a holy spirit and spiritually

devoted to God however his father was keen to be worshipped


by everyone including his own son as a God. But it was not
accepted by the Prahlad and he continued worshipping God. His
father was angry with him and planned to kill him by burning in
the fire. He asked sister Holika to have Prahlad in her lap and
sit in the fire (as Holika was booned by the God to never get
killed by the fire). Holika did so but unfortunately she died in
the fire and Prahlad was saved by the Lord. This myth had
originated the holi celebration.
People fully enjoy this day by playing colors, meeting and
hugging each other, eating tasty foods and other activities.

neighbours and apply abeer to their forehead which shows their
happiness to each other. People welcome others at their door
step with lots of eating things and colours. In this way, they
pass their whole day with lots of fun and joy.

Introduction
Holi is also known as the Festival of colors in India. It is a spring festival
and perhaps the happiest and most colorful religious festival of the Hindus.
Holi Festival is widely celebrated in India, Nepal and other places with
Hindu population. In recent times, this festival has also gained acceptance
among Non-Hindus as a spring festival of love and colors.
It is celebrated on the first day of Chaitra. It makes the beginning of the
spring season. The beauty of nature makes this festival colorful.
The lovely flowers with their dazzling colors and the sweet songs of the
cuckoo provide a charming background to Holi.

Celebration of Holi
The Holi celebrations begin on the last day of Phalgun. People collect
sticks and straws lying in streets at a place. At night they gather at that
place and set fire to the huge pile of sticks and straws. They sing songs to
the accompaniment of drums. They are mad with joy. They break up when
the fire fades out.
The main celebration follows the next day. People are in a happy mood.
They sprinkle colored water on another. They smear their faces with
colored powders. Children spray colored water on the passes-by.
Even the old people are mad with joy. All people are in a jolly mood. They
forget social distinctions. They mix with all freely. In our villages people

move about with colored water. They sing, dance, and jump about. They
beat drums and sing loudly in a chorus. In the evening they visit their
friends and neighbors.
After playing holi, many people get together again in the evening to
celebrate the occasion with delicious food and desserts. Some people also
wear new clothes on this occasion.

Its Importance
Holi is an important festival of the Hindus. It is a festival of joy. It gives us
the message of friendship and goodwill. On this occasion we forget our old
quarrels and mix with all freely. At least for one day we forget social
distinctions completely. There is no difference between the rich and the
poor. Holi gives us great joy. It is a happy occasion when we forget our
cares and anxieties.

Evils of Holi
Holi has got some evils. Many people get drunk on this occasion. They
indulge in rowdy behavior and apply colors that are dangerous for
health. Some people sing indecent songs and abuse women. This should
never happen.

Conclusion
We should celebrate Holi in a decent way. We must realize that it is a
festival of joy and friendship. We should share our joy with others. We must
not behave badly. The real spirit of the festival should be maintained.

The development of science a blessing or Curse
The development of science has made our lives easier
and happier. But at the same time it has affected our
lives adversely. Science has gifted us with some
wonderful industrial machines. Today, industries used
the latest technology for production. Computers are
used in every field. They operate faster and are more
accurate than a human being. But then many workers
have become unemployed.
Electrical appliances like the mixture, vacuum cleaner,
fridge , Air Conditioner A.C. have made the work of
housewife easier and faster. Satellites and the T.V. have
brought the whole world into our living rooms. But
people become addicted to T.V. and youth have learnt
the wrong values.
Science has been a great blessing in the field of
medicine, many diseases can now be cured, controlled
and prevented and even eradicated. This has increased
the life-span of a man. But on the other hand,
inventions such as atom bombs, nuclear bombs and the
other destructive weapons have increased the chances
of total destruction of humanity. Vehicles have, no
doubt , made transportation easy, but have also led to
noise and air pollution. If science is used constructively,
it is a blessing. But if misused , it could be a curse.

A Visit to a historical place- The Taj-Mahal


Last year, I went to Delhi and Agra with my parents. There; we visited a
number of places worth seeing. The most powerful splendid building that
struck us was-: The Taj-Mahal.
The Taj Mahal is a magnificent building which is situated on the bank of
the river Yamuna. It was built by the emperor Shah Jahan in memory of his
beloved queen, Mumtaj Mahal. When she was on death-bed, she asked the
king to erect Taj on her tomb- A grand building. So; that her memories
with King; might live forever. Shah-Jahan made promise and kept it.
The tomb stands on a raised platform. It is made of white marble. In the
large hall, the queen is buried. Black and white marble had been used on
pavements. The windows are made of fine marble screen. The walls are
engraved with beautiful flowers and verses from the holy Quran. These
are decorated with precious stones of different colours. The tomb stands in
four spacious and grand gardens. There is a big white dome in the middle
with four magnificent minarets on the four sides.
The tomb stone bears these words: - Mumtaj Mahal lies here and God
alone is Powerful. There are trees which land charm to the background.
The beds of the flowers in the mid of the small green lawns are pleasing.
The beauty of Taj is worth seeing on a moon light night.
The Taj is one of the Seven Wonders of the World. It is said that it took
20,000 workers, 20 years to complete this monument.
Hundred of visitors come daily from far places and never miss to have a
look at it. So we led the Taj and came back home with its sweet memories.
