    Dear All, There is a red weather warning in Cardiff and all Schools and most hospitals have been closed. We Therefore have rescheduled Holi Celebration to Sunday 11th march 2018. I am sure who all are coming will plan accordingly. Looking forward to welcome you all. Please see below Car Parking Charges also. Holi Hai ! The festival of colours Holi will be celebrated at India Centre on Sunday 11th of March 2018. 6.00pm Gate Opens 6.30 pm to 7.45 pm Holi Milan, Dance, Dhoom Dhamaka 7.45pm Aarti 8.00pm Dinner Entry fee Only £ 5.00 adults Chldren under 12 £ 3.00 Children Under 5 Free Please confirm attendence for catering purposes. As the car parking space at India Centre is limited and the number of people wishing to park inside is much more, we have decided to keep a parking attendant at every major event including Holi. Clearly there are cost considerations and therefore we would need to charge a nominal fee of £1.00 from those who wish to park inside India Centre. This would mean that the cars are parked more orderly such that a bigger number of cars can be accommodated inside and the presence of a parking attendant would also mean safety of the cars. The executive team look forward to improving your experience at the India Centre. For tickets and further information please contact; Niru Kumar 02920 753556 or reply to this email The festival of colours As the brief spring warms the landscape, northern India cuts loose for a day of hijinx and general hilarity. The festival of Holi is celebrated on the day after the full moon in early March every year. Originally a festival to celebrate good harvests and fertility of the land, Holi is now a symbolic commemmoration of a legend from Hindu Mythology. The story centres around an arrogant king who resents his son Prahlada worshipping Lord Vishnu. He attempts to kill his son but fails each time. Finally, the king's sister Holika who is said to be immune to burning, sits with the boy in a huge fire. However, the prince Prahlada emerges unscathed, while his aunt burns to death. Holi commemorates this event from mythology, and huge bonfires are burnt on the eve of Holi as its symbolic representation. This exuberant festival is also associated with the immortal love of Krishna and Radha, and hence, Holi is spread over 16 days in Vrindavan as well as Mathura - the two cities with which Lord Krishna shared a deep affiliation. Apart from the usual fun with coloured powder and water, Holi is marked by vibrant processions which are accompanied by folk songs, dances and a general sense of abandoned vitality. Today Holi is an excuse for Indians to shed inhibitions and caste differences for a day of spring fever and Big Fun. Teenagers spend the day flirting and misbehaving in the streets, adults extend the hand of peace, and everyone chases everyone else around, throwing brightly colored powder (gulal) and water over each other. In fact, on the days of Holi, you can get away with almost anything by saying, "Don't mind, it's Holi!" (Bura na mano, Holi hai.) The festival's preamble begins on the night of the full moon. Bonfires are lit on street corners to cleanse the air of evil spirits and bad vibes, and to symbolize the destruction of the wicked Holika, for whom the festival was named. The following morning, the streets fill with people running, shouting, giggling and splashing. Marijuana-based bhang and thandai add to the uninhibited atmosphere. Holi - the festival of colors - is undoubtedly the most fun-filled and boisterous of Hindu festival. It's an occasion that brings in unadulterated joy and mirth, fun and play, music and dance, and, of course, lots of bright colors!

Significance of Shivaratri in Hinduism Festival of Mahashivaratri has tremendous significance in Hinduism. According to sacred scriptures, ritual worship of Lord Shiva on Shivratri festival that falls on the 14th day of the dark fortnight in the month of Phalgun pleases Lord Shiva the most. This fact is said to have been declared by Lord Shiva himself, when his consort Parvati asked him as to which ritual performed by his devotees pleases him the most. Even till date, devotees of Lord Shiva perform the ritual worship of Shivratri with care and devotion. They observe day and nigh fast and give sacred bath to Shiva Linga with honey, milk, water etc. Hindus consider it extremely auspicious to worship Lord Shiva on a Shivaratri as it is believed that worship of Lord Shiva with devotion and sincerity absolves a devotee of past sins. The devotee reaches the abode of Lord Shanker and lives there happily. He is also liberated from the cycle of birth and death and attains moksha or salvation.

Married and unmarried women observe fast and perform Shiva Puja with sincerity to appease Goddess Parvati who is also regarded as ‘Gaura’ - one who bestows marital bliss and long and prosperous married life. Unmarried women also pray for a husband like Lord Shiva who is regarded as the ideal husband.
