Holi is one of the most pious festivals characterizing Indian culture; It provides us with an excellent opportunity to forget mutual bitterness and enmity and rekindle our pristine love and amity. It is an occasion to abandon vices and bad traits and awaken our inherent divinity, bliss and the true happiness that spring from spontaneity, simplicity and egolessness.
This festival of colours brings forth a sense of social unity in diversity, manifesting the keen foresightedness of our ancestors. While the showers of diverse colours bring cheer and delight, they can bring about misery as well if one is not careful, restrained and sensible enough during the celebrations. Therefore one should take due precautions during this festival.
In the olden days people would use the natural colours of the Palash flowers, kumkum, gulal, turmeric, etc., but today the use of chemical colours is rampant. These chemicals cause adverse reactions on the skin and therefore one should avoid them. In case someone throws chemical colours on you, apply a mixture of gram flour, wheat flour, milk, turmeric and oil and wash it off quickly. If lemon juice is rubbed on the affected parts before applying this mixture, it helps remove the stains more quickly and properly.
Apply coconut oil or mustard oil to the body before celebrating the festival so that the chemical colours do not have an adverse effect on the body and using a simple soap washes off the stains completely.
Chemical colours available in market are mostly prepared using engine oil mixed with metal oxides or dyesi.e. BLACK colour is prepared using “Lead oxide” that causes liver diseases. It also inhibits hearing ability in human beings.GREEN colour contains ‘copper sulphate’ that cause eye disorders and can also lead to complete blindness. Purple colour contains ‘chromium iodide’ that can cause bronchial asthma and allergy like disease. Silver colour contains ‘aluminum bromide‘ that can cause cancer. Blue Colour contains ‘prussian blue’ that can cause skin diseases. Red colour contains ‘mercuric sulfate’ that can cause skin cancer and lead to mental retardation. So, avoid playing Holi with chemical colours at all costs.
