Banasthali Celebrates Basant Utsav Holi with a Riot of Vibrant Colours

If Holi celebration at Tagore’s Shantiniketan Bengal is scintillating, for sure at Gandhi Niketan Banasthali Rajasthan, it is dazzling. With 16000 students coming from different parts of India, the 850 acre Banasthali campus itself is a mini India echoing the lines of Gurudev Rabindranath Tagore in National anthem “Panjaba-Sindhu-Gujarata-Maratha Dravida-Utkala-Banga.”

Appreciated by the world at large, Banasthali firmly believes that to be top ranking, it is the foremost responsibility of any Indian educational institution to nurture humans with the tolerant and harmonious view of life as envisaged in the Indian culture the spirit of which has been beautifully captured in the Indian Constitution by the founding fathers of the nation.

The rich ethnic diversity of India truly comes alive when the campus celebrates Hariyali Teej, Janmasthami, Ganesh Chaturthi, Navratra Dandiya & Garba, Durgasthami, Dusshera, Diwali, Guru Nanak Jayanti, Eid al Fitr, Christmas, Lohri, Basant Panchami and Holi. During these celebrations, the students and faculty of Banasthali add a spectrum of colours and gaiety to campus life and indeed rise above caste and creed and develop mutual respect for all religions. Holi undoubtedly is indeed a festival of multiple significances – mythological, cultural, social and biological.

With Supermoon and spring equinox coinciding, Holi celebrations at Banasthali started on 20 Mar 2019 late evening with the burning of Holika in front of Saraswati Mandir and Vani Mandir. This year the Banasthalites were hyper charged as the periodical examinations had just finished and the girls were all ready to let go of the exam heat with the colors of Holi. To set the mood right, the Banasthali orchestra played some classic Holi tunes.

At sunrise on 21 May 2019, even the notoriously late sleepers in the hostels were up early to grab the breakfast and were all geared up with loads of colours in front of the respective hostels. With the hostel warden keeping the eyes sharper doing the customary wishes in the public address system, the riot of vibrant colours erupted with shouting of ‘Bura na Mano Holi Hai’. It is remarkable that students were particular in choosing environment friendly colours and avoided spraying water. Everybody becomes every others friends when it comes to colour play. With the favorite songs played in the music system, the dancing goes frenzy. The staff quarters also holi is played with full enthusiasm. The menu in the mess for Holi typically includes munching Matris, sweety gujiyas, puris, rajma chawal, dahi vadas, and cracky khakhras.

According to Varnika Singh third year BTech Chemical student, Banasthali Holi is truly unforgeetable. Her batch mate Pragati Sharma said several Banasthali alumni who had passed out two decades ago, egged by the memories had come all the way to Banasthali to join the holi celebrations this year and wowed to do the same few years from now. To quote Aditi Agrawal second year BTech Chemical student, no other university campus oill ever come close to the holi celebration spirit of Banasthali campus.

It is for sure that the students and faculty celebrated Holi with beaming faces and pride that they were indeed part of a top ranking institution which is a jewel in the crown among the women's universities not only in India today but across the globe.
