Could you tell us non-India residents what this celebration is about? And what is gulaal-- Like confetti? It sounds absolutely wonderful and I would like to know more about this. I have always admired the religions and beliefs people have in India. Americans could - and should - adopt some of your ways. I am often ashamed of my country, especially lately with this new President. Many American are good, decent, honest people who work hard and love their families. But one might not know that, reading the news. Our current President is embarrassing to most of us.
