Although Holi is primarily a Hindu celebration, it is also observed by people of various faiths. It marks the start of the country’s spring harvest season.

People enjoy lip-smacking sweets, thandai, and splashing coloured powder, water, and balloons while chanting “Holi Hai” during the festival.

In terms of the ongoing World Cup, Team India will face Australia in their next match in Auckland on Saturday. India has played four matches thus far, with two wins and two losses.
