MIRACULOUSLY

The festivity will be observed by Hindu faithful and friends in Kenya. A Holi Mela (fete) is set to be held at the SSD Temple Grounds to set the ball rolling for merry making and group dancing to the beat of Holi songs. The highlight of the festivity remains a spirited exposition by participants to colour each other with dry colours or spraying coloured water. This in the true spirit of Holi — symbolically to wish everyone happiness and love. Kenyan faithful will also attend religious ceremonies at temples and community centres throughout the Republic.
