Holi in Bhil Tribes of North West India

The Bhils in Rajasthan and Madhya Pradesh have their own special way to mark the festival. It is interesting to note that these tribes have retained many of their pre-Hindu customs. They light a bonfire on the eve and worship the goddess. Villagers bring kesudo and mango spring flowers and grains signifying new life. When the fire is lit, loud cries of Holimata rend the air.

Young people in the tribes have their own reason to look forward to the festival as they are allowed to form liaisons leading into marriages on Holi. No wonder they depict high level of enthusiasm when it comes to Holi.
