Punjabi's in Gurgaon will celebrate floral Holi to curtail water loss
Punjabi's in Gurgaon may not be celebrating the festival of Holi the way it is celebrated in Punjab, but still we can witness the culture and tradition of Punjabi Holi in it. Hola Mohalla is the joyful name that Holi gets in the state of Punjab. The festival is celebrated in an entirely different manner and its significance also shifts a little here.

In a bid to protect the environment, and to curtail the water loss The All Punjabi Welfare Association (APWA), which is a social and cultural organisation in Gurgaon, is celebrating a floral Holi this time.

APWA is an association which works for the upliftment of Punjabi culture in Gurgaon and which also celebrate festivals and anniversaries of saints. APWA is an association of business men, professors, retired army generals, senior IAS and IPS officers from Sector 21, 22 and 23 Palam Vihar in Gurgaon.

Munish Chander Gulati, General Secretary of APWA said, “We gather in a ground and will play Holi in the morning. This time we are going to play Holi with flower petals and then we will sing the 'Holi ke geet' (Holi songs), after that we will go and meet our friends.”

He also added, “We will have a family get together in the evening, where all of us will enjoy the delicacies of Punjab.”

Punjabi's around the world celebrate Holi with pomp and show. The Holi of Punjabi's starts with 'choti Holi', which is more important then Holi for them. And on the day of Holi 'dhole' is an important musical instrument, because without this the celebrations are incomplete for them.
