Generally, it is celebrated in the southern part of Asia, but now it has reached other parts of the world as well. People from all over the globe know and celebrate this festival. Because of the joy, happiness, and positivity it brings.

In India, 'Lathmar Holi' in the town of Barsana sees women playfully beating men with sticks, while 'Rangwali Holi' in Nepal transforms the streets into a riot of colours. In Bangladesh, 'Basanta Utsav' welcomes spring with vibrant processions and cultural performances, symbolizing the victory of good over evil. All of these are celebrating the same festival but in different ways.
