Holi Pooja 7 March 2012


Holika Dahan preparations begin almost
40 days before the festival. People start gathering woods on the important
crossroads of the city. Holi Pooja or Holika takes place on an auspicious time
in the evening a day before the Holi festival. Given below are the steps and
rituals for the Holi Pooja:
  1. Holi Pooja can be performed at any
  2. A log of wood is kept at a
    prominent public place on the Vasant Panchami day.
  3. People extend the log centre with
    twigs, dried leaves, branches of trees and other combustible material.
  4. On the day of Holika Dahan, an
    effigy of Holika and Prahlad is placed on the huge heap of woods.
  5. Left over ashes are collected by
    people next morning. These ashes are considered holy and are smeared on
    the limbs of the body as Holi Prasad
Holi Pooja is performed in a different
manner in some communities. Marwari women offer Holi puja in the afternoon and
evening i.e. before setting fire to ‘Holika’. It is called ‘Thandi Holi’. The
whole puja process is considered very auspicious for the married women. It
ensures well-being and healthy life of their husband.

Women’s Day
A big day for every women “International Women’s Day” (IWD), originally called International Working Women’s Day, is
marked on March 8 every year. In different regions the focus of the
celebrations ranges from general celebration of respect, appreciation and love
towards women to a celebration for women’s economic, political and social
achievements. Started as a Socialist political event, the holiday blended in
the culture of many countries, primarily Eastern
Europe, Russia, and the former Soviet bloc. In many regions, the day
lost its political flavour, and became simply an occasion for men to express
their love for women in a way somewhat similar to a mixture of Mother’s Day and St
Valentine’s Day. In other regions, however, the original political and human
rights theme designated by the United
Nations runs strong and political
and social awareness of the struggles of women worldwide are brought out and
examined in a hopeful manner. (From Wikipedia)
