Holi, the festival of colours is a great time to bond with family and friends. It is a time to lose your inhibitions and have fun playing with colours, even, as you catch up with your friends. It is also a time to indulge in food and festivities. Just a decade ago, families got together to make sweets like Gujiyas at home but times have changed and now it is more about relaxing with family and friends and even taking a small holiday if one wants. As for feasting, people are more often than not relying on restaurants to enjoy great food, especially after a hectic day of playing with colours and water.
It is that time of the year when Amdavadis enjoy colours and sweets along with friends with total abandonment. Restaurants and eateries are going all out to ensure you have a good time.
