Holi is a popular ancient Hindu festival originating from the Indian peninsula. It is mainly celebrated in India, but it has also spread to other parts of Asia and parts of the Western world through the diaspora of the Indian subcontinent.
The Holi festival has a cultural significance among the various Hindu traditions of the Indian subcontinent. It is a feast day to eliminate and get rid of past mistakes, end up conflicts by meeting others, forget and forgive. People pay or forgive their debts, cope again with debts in their lives. Holi is also an opportunity for people to enjoy the changing seasons and make new friends in the beginning of spring, the beginning of the new year.

"I try to live my life where I end up at a point where I have no regrets. So I try to choose the road that I have the most passion on because then you can never really blame yourself for making the wrong choices. You can always say you’re following your passion."
David Lynch (1946 - )
“It’s better not to know so much about what things mean or how they might be interpreted or you’ll be too afraid to let things keep happening.”
Jim Jarmusch (1953 - )
“Nothing is original. Steal from anywhere that resonates with inspiration or fuels your imagination. Devour old films, new films, music, books, paintings, photographs, poems, dreams, random conversations, architecture, bridges, street signs, trees, clouds, bodies of water, light and shadows. Select only things to steal from that speak directly to your soul. If you do this, your work (and theft) will be authentic. Authenticity is invaluable; originality is non-existent. And don’t bother concealing your thievery - celebrate it if you feel like it. In any case, always remember what Jean-Luc Godard said: “It’s not where you take things from – it’s where you take them to.”
