Asian Scene- Holi the SYNC Style, 18th March- The Star

The story of Holika and her brother King Hiranyakashipu has been told for many hundreds of years and to date it remains significant when explaining children on the existence of God and that faith can take you far. Thus a bonfire named “Holika” is lit at sunset while during the day there is splashing of colors, water, eating specialities like gujia and with the theme from the Hindi films, there is a declaration of love, such that it is believed only the person who loves you puts the color on you first.

In the midst of all these traditions was the fun of the Nairobi crowd at the SSD Temple, hosted by SYNC (Sanatan Youth Nurturing Community), sponsored by Nakumatt, Imperial Bank, Xplico, Adpak and East FM. This time round, there were nearly double the number of stalls and the turn up was very good. There was excitement, water guns, fun, games and music into the night.
