Gulal or Abir (Bengali) or Abhir (Odia) is the traditional name given to the colored powders used for the typical Hindu rituals, in particular for the Holi festival or Dol Purnima (though commonly associated with the red color used in the festival). During this festival, which celebrates love and equality, people throw these powder solutions at each other while singing and dancing. A legend narrates that Lord Krishna complained to his mother about the darkness of his skin compared to that of his consort Radha. As a result, Krishna's mother smeared colours on Radha's face. This explains why today Holi is celebrated by throwing colours on people.
