HOLI,DOLJATRA, FAG UTSAB, BONHU UTSAB AND BASANT UTSAB

CREATION OF COLORS





AFTER SUNSET

IN THE FULL MOON
India's one of the most ancient festival is HOLI. This is known as different name. But everywhere there is a different explanation and history behind it,. In different era it's name has been changed. But the basic joy and theme is almost remains same. And it is accepted by all the Indian through out the periods from heart and soul. Here I will give some references . 
Regarding HOLI AND BONHI UTSAB the best information is given in WIKIPEDIA.

IN BENGAL it is DOLJATRA. There is PHULODOL also. tThis was started from the time

 of SRI KRISHNA. 
And SRI CHAITANYA DEV AND THE OTHER VAISNAVA still are following that.
This is also given in WIKIPEDIA.

But why it is in Phalgun and why with Phag/ abir ? 

To search this question first we have to know Phag has come from Phalgu.
Here is the meaning of Phalgu.


Vide- Sanskrit Dictionary for Spoken Sanskrit.html
 A meaning of 
phalgu is  RED. AND RED POWDER FROM WILD GINGER.










Notice the last meaning RED POWDER OF WILD GINGER.
This colour and substance probably used in the ancient time which has many medicinal value.

It is depicted first FALGU UTSAB was done after the victory

 of the DEVATA against ASURA and it was created by 
BRAHMODEB.[see-PUROHIT DARPAN  by

COLOR AND THE LORD.

From the meaning RED we can understand why this month is PHALGUN.

The star having this color is called PHALGUNI NAKHSATRA.










The ginger family consists of 53 genera and over 1,200 species,
