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.
