Holi is also known by the name of Dol Purnima in West Bengal.
Early in the morning, on the Dol Purnima day students dress up in
saffron-coloured clothes and wear garlands of fragrant flowers. They sing
and dance to the accompaniment of musical instruments presenting an
enchanting view to the onlookers and a memory to cherish for years.
The festival is also known as 'Dol Jatra', 'Dol Purnima'
The festival is celebrated in a dignified manner
by placing the idols of Krishna and Radha on a picturesquely decorated
palanquin which is then taken round the main streets of the city. The
devotees take turns to swing them while women dance around the swing and
sing devotional songs. Throughout the procession men keep spraying coloured
water and colour powder, 'abeer'
