The festival of colours, Holi was celebrated gaily, by students of Social Welfare hostels, in Khammam district. About 1,000 students from all SW hostels in the division came together and celebrated Holi by spraying colours on each other and enjoying themselves. They said that they were very happy to celebrate Holi in this manner. The organisers said that the idea was for the students to come together as a family and celebrate Holi. They have been doing this for the past three years.
