Rang Panchami is a Hindu festival celebrated on the fifth day of the Shukla Paksha (waxing moon period) in the Hindu month of Bhadrapada. This year, it will be observed on Sunday, March 12, 2023. It is a colorful festival that marks the end of the monsoon season and the beginning of the spring season. On this day, people participate in joyous celebrations by smearing each other with colored powders, playing with water, and dancing. The festival symbolizes the victory of good over evil and is a time for spreading love, happiness, and unity. Rang Panchami is especially popular in the western and central regions of India and is a time for families and friends to come together and have fun. In some regions, the festival is also associated with the worship of Lord Krishna, who is believed to have played with colored powders with the gopis (milkmaids) during the celebration.
