The mirth and joy that you experience in getting drenched in colored water which people throw at you, water filled balloons that are aimed at you etc. is simply unparalleled. In certain cities, people go wild on Holi. Cow dung is also targeted on certain people who dare to go out on streets alone, on Holi. If you venture to step out of your house on Holi, then be rest assured, you will come back colored.
