Holi is a Hindu festival famously known as the Festival of Colour, it takes place over two days and is a celebration of fertility, colour and love as well as the triumph of good versus evil. Holi celebrated  all around the world and mostly celebrated the most in parts of India and Nepal. It is often associated with the coloured powders that end up coating its participants after they have thrown them at each other. Holi is split into two events Holika Dahan and Rangwali Holi. Holika Dahan takes place the night before Rangwali Holi. Wood and dung cakes are burned in a symbolic pyre to signify good defeating evil (in Hindu Vedi scriptures, the God Vishnu helps burn the devil Holika to death). The next morning, people gather in public spaces and take part in Rangwali Holi. This is a raucous affair where people chase each other around, throwing handfuls of coloured powders (known as gulal) at one another, while getting drenched in water.
