Today (8 march 2023) is Holi, the festival of colour. The mythology and history behind the festival are well known and need not be repeated.

Still there were some facts about Holi that I was not aware of. For example, I was not aware that Holi festival falls on Poornima (full moon day), which is the last day of the month of falgun (also called Phagun). This is in fact the last day of the Vikram Samwat Calender. The next day, viz firstd day of The month of Chaitra starts is the first day of the new year of Vikram Samwat.

This full moon day, third full moon of the year, is called worm moon in Western Astronomy circles.

That way, this festival of Holi is the reverse of Deepawali that falls on Amawasya, on the middle of the month of Kartik. In A way, Holi marks the beginning of summer whereas Deepawali marks the beginning of winter.

It is interesting how moon plays such important roles in determining the dates of India festivals.

Since Holi marks the beginning of Summer, so it means that days (that were still shorter than night) begin to get longer. Finally it is on 21 March 2023 that day and night become equal. It is called equinox.

Heavens this year have arranged for two interesting event on the occasion of Holi.:) Just before Holi, the world witnessed the sight of Jupiter and Venus coming close to each other in the evening sky. This was the most important astronomical event of the year.

on 24 march 2023, there will be venus eclipse, viz Moon will cover Venus just like it sometimes covers Sun to cause solar eclipse. It needs full moon to cause solar eclipse, but this venus eclipse will be caused by a thin dooj ka chaand. 🙂 This event is technically called Lunar occultation of Venus.

This festival is being celebrated for thousands of years, it predates even Vikram Samwat, which is 2080 years old. I wonder what calender was used to determine the date of Holi festival (and other festivals) before the Vikram Samwat.

On this occasion, here is a Holi song from “Hamaara Ghar”(1950).

“Hamaara Ghar”(1950) was directed by Nanabhai Bhatt for Hindustan Chitra, Bombay. The movie had Durga Khote, Umakant Desai, Veera, Agha, Meena Kumari, Geeta Bose, David, Jankidas, Ramesh Gupta etc in it.

The movie had seven songs in it. Six songs from the movie have been discussed in the blog in the past. Here are the details:-
