  1. • Holi festival has an ancient origin and celebrates the triumph of 'good' over 'bad'. The colorful festival bridges the social gap and renew sweet relationships. .
  2. • While so many humans combat water shortage on a daily basis, we can try to ensure that our celebrations are not insensitive.
  3. We came up with a playful installation, which can be installed in public spaces.
  4. • Our intention is not to replace real Holi festival, but it is to make people sensitive about the huge volume of water they are wasting.
