Usually Holi is celebrated by spraying colours on each other. But in Hubli of Karnataka state, the devotees hurl burning charcoal at each other in celebration. Even after the temple fire in Kerala, this practice has not stopped in Hubli is it presumed. The devotees first hit themselves with huge footwear. Later, they run over hot, burning charcoal, barefoot, raising it high enough to fall on others.
