Once upon the time, Lord Krishna had been busy for a long time. Thus, he was unable to meet Radha(beloved of Shri Krishna).

As a result, Radha became sad. This made adverse effect on nature, and all the greenery sarted falling. When Lord Krishna observed the condition of nature, he went to meet Radha.

Additionally, when Lord Krishna met Radha, Radha and the gopis were pleased and there was greenery all around again.

After seeing the happiness all around, Shri Krishna plucked a flower and threw it on Radha. Consequently, Radha also threw flowers on Krishna after plucking them. Then the gopis also started this throwing game of flowers at each other.

As a result, Holi of flowers started everywhere. Eventually, it was the second day of Shukla Paksha of Falgun month. Since then this day is celebrated as a festival, Phoolera Dooj.


We live in a society full of hatred, ego, jealousy, greed and other ill feelings. Symbolically, this festival teaches us the value of love, bonding and brotherhood. Humanity is dying everyday because every one wants to be no.1. Lord Krishna guides us to throw away our negative emmotions and feelings and welcome the love and adoration with open arms from the others side. Lets be more compassionate and humble towards each other.
