"HOLI FESTIVAL - ADVERSE HEALTH EFFECT & RELIGIOUS EMOTION - a frequent subject of criticism"

// Author: ADMIN

Hello everybody...

ফাকোৱা বা দৌল উৎসৱৰ শুভকামনা সকলোলৈ...

Holi ki hardik subhkamanayein sobhiko...

Wish you all a very Happy Holi...

Here is a brief note please refer....

The chemicals used in holi colors are being a subject of contradiction among Doctors & Health experts many times. Many reports were published but condition is same. Today again I am writing a few words.

Most common chemicals used are:

1) Copper sulphate

2) Chromium iodide

3) Aluminium bromide

4) Lead oxide

5) Mercury sulphite

6) Powdered glass

Every chemical have their negative health effect sometimes directly we identify but sometimes unnoticed.

History & Present:

Holi stands for

1) To communicate love.

But presently perhaps we are communicating toxicity.

2) A symbol of celebration of victory of good over evil.

But presently perhaps we are celebrating victory of evil thought over good thought e.g. - those who are making & selling chemical induced holi colors & of course those who are giving permit.

Festival of holi started with a good thought but it is true that we people are distorting the true essence of HOLI FESTIVAL and leading it to a subject of criticism & even many people now a days are avoiding due to illness or they don't want to celebrate.

Then what to do:

It is a part of religion with positive thought & it can't be removed, so we should try to continue it positively as much as possible.

USE OF NATURAL COLORS CAN BE THE BEST SOLUTION BUT IT WILL BE A PART OF PRACTICE, IN ONE DAY ALL PEOPLE CAN'T BE TRAINED. THIS WAY ONE CAN PRESERVE THE FESTIVAL WELL & MAY GET POSITIVE HEALTH EFFECTS FROM BEING CONTACTED WITH NATURAL HERBS.

e.g. - TURMERIC POWDER, HENNA POWDER etc.

One thing is also true that the negative effect of HOLI will be continued unless the good people will not open small industries to make natural HOLI colors & substitute the market of chemical induced colors. LET'S HOPE FOR THE BEST.
