Kansai Plascon Sponsors the Holi Festival in Kololo, Hon. Nabbanja Attends



By Reporter

Kansai Plascon, one of Uganda’s leading paint companies officially partnered with the Indian Community to celebrate the Holi Festival that took place at the Arya Samaj Grounds, Kololo at a free entry.

The festival was a huge success as different people turned up as expected since it was the first major Indian community event since the lockdown was lifted.

The Holi Festival originated to celebrate good harvests and fertility. It heralds the onset of spring through a riotous celebration of color. The festival was all about fun, frolic, vibrant and beautiful colours that celebrates the victory of good over evil.

The festival also welcomes all walks of life from age, race or economic differences by greeting the revelers with gulal, colored powder mixed with water which the revelers shower upon each other.

Holi celebrates the legend of Hindu Goddess Radha and Lord Krishna, which describes the extreme delight Krishna took in applying color on Radha and others. It is said that when Krishna was a young boy, he asked his mother the reason for his dark complexion while Radha was so fair. His mother, Yashoda playfully suggested that he should smear color on Radha’s face and change her complexion to any color he wanted. He liked the idea and since then the play of colors on Holi became part of the festivities.

Kansai Plascon Managing Director, Santosh Gumte said, ‘Holi Festival is all about culture, colour, food and celebration. This festival of colors includes interesting rituals, ethnicity, traditional festivals and ceremonies. The mix of colors is energetic and this is a good time to look forward to the good that 2022 has to offer and celebrate together. We are here to relax and not to differentiate, but to rejoice in the spirit of brotherhood.

Plascon’s factory is based in Namanve with the most advanced paint manufacturing site in East Africa and produces 200,000 Litres a day. It  is also the only UNBS certified Paint manufacturer in Uganda.
