This Holi, stay safe while having fun

A growing concern that arises every holi is that of wastage of resources. Hence playing with water isn't a preferred option but you can always play with powder or gulal instead. Not all powders, though. Many locally available holi powders contain toxic levels of chemicals like lead which have detrimental effects when exposed to the skin, eyes and hair. Take precaution when having fun during the festivities with these 5 colours which are made naturally and are a safe option for Holi.
