Phagwah

 Hindu Celebrations / Posted 10 months ago by Admin31 / 55 views

Every March, the Hindus of Guyana observe this religious holiday to celebrate the victory of good over evil. Hindus wear white and throw abeer (a type of red liquid or dye) at one another to symbolize the blood of King Kiranya, a tyrannical ruler who was burned alive by his son, Prince Prahalad, for all the suffering he inflicted upon the people. Water, perfume and powder are also thrown at neighbors, friends and family. This fun and good-natured celebration is also enjoyed by non-Hindus.
