Kejriwal government organises Rangotsav at Sunder Nursery on the eve of Holi, Dy CM Manish Sisodia kicks of celebrations
The Kejriwal government hosted ‘Holi Rangotsav’ at Sunder Nursery on the eve of Holi, on Thursday, in collaboration with the Sahitya Kala Parishad. Speaking on the occasion, Deputy Chief Minister Shri Manish Sisodia said, “Holi as a festival brings smiles on the faces of people and gives them an opportunity to share the colours of happiness with each other with full enthusiasm. After two years, our lives are returning to normalcy and it’s time to embrace this colourful change. This will help us recover from the Covid onslaught that hit us hard over the past two years, when most of us were compelled to remain confined to our houses. Now when lives are gradually coming back on track, nothing can be better than welcoming it with Holi.”
Shri Sisodia said that after a long time, people want to come out of difficult times, smile, enjoy and get immersed in colours. I always pray to god for their wellbeing and that such a colourless phase should not return again, he added. He further said that the specialty of Holi in India is that it erases all biases of caste-religious conflicts & ego clashes, and paints everyone in the colours of unity and brotherhood.
The Deputy Chief Minister said that Holi is such a festival which is celebrated by everyone right from Saawariya to Pir Auliya. Be it saffron, white or green, Holi remains incomplete until all the colours come together. So everyone should come together and enjoy this festival of happiness and play Holi freely. It is time to let go of the negative energies from our lives and start afresh post difficult times of the Covid.
The Rangotsav was organised by the Department of Art, Culture and Languages of the Kejriwal Government. Puppet shows along with folk dances and musical performances by artists from different states of the country gave the message of unity in diversity. Lathmar Holi of Braj and ‘Phoolon Ki Holi’ were other major attractions of the event.
