Holi-hai! Holi-hai! could be heard throughout India last week. “Holi-hai” means let’s celebrate Holi, a festival that commemorates the divine love between Lord Krishna and Radha. Holi draws its religious importance from the roots of Vaishnavism; the burning of Holika and Lord Vishnu emerging as a savior to humanity. This festival is usually celebrated with bonfires and practically everyone throwing coloured powder at each other.

At Adobe India, employees took the opportunity to participate in various activities throughout the week, which included sketching, rangoli decorating and dancing. We had a wonderful time celebrating camaraderie and unity, as we also bid farewell to winter and welcomed spring; the season of abundant colors.
