24 April 2014 – The IMU Indian and Sri Lankan Cultural Society celebrated the Holi festival at the University’s campus in Bukit Jalil. More than 100 IMU students participated in this event, which was organised to collect funds for an upcoming event, Deepavali Night which will be held in November.
As the event started, the IMU students, who have a very good sense of music, started to dance and play with the coloured powders. All these participants were exhausted from having fun at the end of the event and were covered with colours which took hours of scrubbing to remove it from the skin. The event was a success as every participant enjoyed it to the maximum. Some of the participants even said that they feel more relaxed after a hectic day and they feel less stressed even though exams were around the corner.
Holi festival is celebrated by Hindus around the world and is a popular spring festival also known as the festival of colours and festival of love. In this event, participants traditionally throw bright, vibrant powders at friends and strangers as they celebrate the arrival of spring and allow each other a momentary freedom — a chance to drop their inhibitions and simply play and dance to the music.
Holi is mostly celebrated as it unites the people without having a barrier. Participants can have the opportunity to mingle and have fun. More photos uploaded to our Facebook post
