President Patil greets nation ahead of Holi

March 7, 2012 - New Delhi

President Pratibha Devisingh Patil on Wednesday conveyed her greetings to the people of the nation ahead of Holi.

"On the festive occasion of Holi, I convey my greetings to all my fellow citizens.

Holi is a festival of colours that heralds joy, hope and fulfilment in our lives. Like the colours of a rainbow, that are different yet together they reflect beauty, may this festival bring together all the colours of India's diversity in a rainbow of unity," said Patil.

Holi will be celebrated on March 8, but in some parts of India, the celebration begins a week before the festival.
