Vasant Utsav at Shanti Niketan

Rabindranath Tagore, the famous saint-poet and the Indian Noble laureate, revived the spirit of Holi in India as the Spring festival or Vasant Utsav at Shanti Niketan. The students of Bishwabharati University here dress in yellow-colored dresses on this day and celebrate Holi by performing special cultural programmes such as group choreography, songs and dances. They welcome the Spring by staging various aspects of this joyous festival in an artistic manner. Later, all the students and teachers play Holi with 'abeer' and 'gulal', the colored powders and smear each other's faces with red, yellows and greens.
