Holi 2019 Special: The festival of Holi is near, as it will be celebrated throughout India on March 21, 2019. Whenever we think of this festival, the first thing that comes to our mind is not only the vibrant colours that you play Holi with, but also the dangers associated with them. In olden days, Holi was played with colours made from flowers and herbs. However, these days ready-made colours are used, which contains artificial substances that are toxic to the skin. The artificial dyes present in these colours can make your skin dry and break into a rash.
