This is my first blog. Here you can get the article on Hindu Hindi Hindustan
Holi commemorates the victory of good over evil, brought about by the burning and destruction of the demoness named Holika. This was enabled through unwavering devotion to the Hindu god of preservation, Lord Vishnu.

Holi got its name as the "Festival of Colors" from Lord Krishna, a re-incarnation of Lord Vishnu, who liked to play pranks on the village girls by drenching them in water and colors.The festival marks the end of winter and the abundance of the upcoming spring harvest season.
 

Holi in Uttar Pradesh 
            Uttar Pradesh is the best place in India to experience the true flavor of the festival of colors Holi. Celebrations in Mathura and Varanasi are the most exciting amongst all of the celebrations in the state. The essence of Holi celebrations in Brajbhoomi is said to be kept the same even today, as it was celebrated thousands years back (during Krishna's era). Holi in Braj start a week earlier than the rest of India. The concept of the Holi at Braj is that men from Nandagaon (Village of Lord Krishna) raid Barsana (Radha's village) to raise a flag on Shri Radhikaji temple. The catch being that women from Barsana greet them with long wooden sticks and colored water where the men have to be well padded as they cannot retaliate. Their only self-defence is water guns which they use at the ladies in order to distract them. This is one of the most popular of the Holi festivals in India also popularly called as 'Lathmaar Holi'
            
Holi is one beautiful and colorful festivals of India. This is one festival where all the religious, linguistic and cultural barriers are broken. To feel the real essence of Holi, it must be witnessed in the spirits of men, women and children of Uttar Pradesh.
