The Tesu Flower: A Symbol of celebration and beauty in the spring festival of Holi

Exploring the significance of the vibrant orange-Red flower in India's popular spring celebration

The Tesu flower

Also known as Palash, Tesu is a beautiful flower that is native to India. Its vibrant orange-red color makes it a popular choice for the Holi festival, which is celebrated in March every year. Holi marks the arrival of spring and the triumph of good over evil. The Tesu flower is particularly significant during the festival because it is dried and ground to make natural colors for the celebration. These colors, known as 'gulal', are smeared on each other's faces and clothes.

Despite its short lifespan, Tesu brings immense joy and beauty to the festival, elucidating to us that even fleeting things can bring happiness.
