"Dola Purnima" or Holi is a popular festival in the coastal districts of Orissa. This is Full Moon Day in the month of Phalguna. Spring is welcomed through the festival and is enjoyed with joy and bliss. This festival has been referred to in the ancient texts as "Basantotsaba" or Spring-festival. Some scriptures have certified that festival celebrated in honor of "Madanotsaba", "Madana" or Cupid, later "Dolalasaba" or "Krishna's swing-festival, therefore, on this occasion Krishna is presented as" Madan Mohan " According to the festival's description, Dolasabaa is mentioned in many 'Puranas' and other Sanskrit texts. 'Padma Puran' says, "One comes out of all sins, which is in the way of Krishna in the swing.

The festival is especially important for cattle because of their association with cowboy boys Cristina. They are bathed, anointed with Vermilion, are fed and fed richly. The festival is associated with the destruction of demon Hollikasura or monster Holika, for which the festival is called Holi.

Time to celebrate

Although the festival of Holi is celebrated throughout the day with joy and fun, the festival is celebrated for five days in Orissa. It starts from the tenth day of the fabled fortnight of Falguna, which is called "Fagu Dasami". People who blurred the head with 'Abira' (a purple colorful powder) carry the idols of Mannamamona to the richly decorated palanquins, which are called "Vimana" This kind of Mela or Fair continues in the various places of Cuttack, Puri and Ganjam districts for the month of Chaitra.


The procession is led by village drummers, pipers and 'Shankara Mandilyas'. The procession stops in front of every house and the deity is offered 'indulgence'. For four days the daily routine of the deity is called "cousin". On the last day of the full moon, the festival ends in a swing-festival for the deities. Statues made in Vimna from many villages are collected at an important place where swings are fixed on one platform. They are made to swing in the chorus with devotional devotional music. In the olden days, the beginning of the new year was calculated from the spring. After the swinging of the gods, 'Ganaka' or 'Astrology' (astronomer-cum-fate teller) reads new Utya Almanac and tells important events to take place during the year. For this reason, some opinions believe that this festival is to celebrate the whole new year.

There is a festival on the fourteenth day of fortnight, in which there is a straw-cottage fire between too much entertainment and excitement. It is known as "Holipoda" (Holy Burning). The legend about it is that, 'Holika' was the most beautiful sister of the demon king, 'Hiranyakashayu'. As an avid devotee of Shiva, he got a boon that he would never die after drowning or burning. Despite all the heinous efforts, the devotees of Hiranyakashipu Vishnu could not kill their son Prahlada, then they planned to burn it in ashes. As soon as the Holika will never burn, she was asked to walk in the fire with a child in her hands. It is surprising that the child became unhappy but the Holika was burnt. Angered in this deer, Shiva asked about his inability to boast. Then Shiva responded, "I have given it a boon to save myself, not to kill anyone." To remind you of this, Holipoda is celebrated and the next day the colors are Holi 'Holi' in which people blur the color powder, each other's faces and head and throat water. Very fun and fun in the festival.


In some places, the burning of straw huts is known as "Mankhododhi" or the burning of Rama. It is said in a legend that a monster known as 'Mesha' was creating panic in the heavens and the earth, God and humans prayed to save Krishna from their atrocities. Krishna killed him and burned it in ashes. Therefore, it is to remind the incident that a cottage is burnt, which represents the residence of the demon.
