By Staff Reporter

GUWAHATI, March 24 - Holi was celebrated with much fanfare and enthusiasm across the State on Tuesday and Wednesday. The festival of colours signifies fun-filled camaraderie, in which all sections of people come together to celebrate.

Holi enthusiasts came on to the streets smearing colours on each other�s faces and exchanging Holi greetings. People also visited their near and dear one for celebrating the festival and community feasting.

The festival also has a religious side, where people visit temples and organize Holi-geet programmes offering abir to the revered deity. Doul Utsav was organized in sattra institutions and Vaishnavite temples of the State. Seeking blessings from the elders is also integral to the festival.

Along with the rest of the State, Guwahati too had a fair share of festivities, though not without some incidents of rash driving and inconvenience to the commuters by some drunken Holi enthusiasts on both the days of the festival.
