People from all walks of life and faiths took part in the Holi celebrations here, which began early on Thursday morning and continued till evening.
Deputy Commissioner Sameer Shukla celebrated Holi with his family at his residence. Boys and girls traversed the city on two-wheelers, breaking colour-filled pots and throwing eggs. Over 150 effigies of Kama were burnt in the city, and later, most of the revellers gathered at Line Bazaar Road and at Jayanagar Cross, where ‘dahi handi’ competitions were held. As an added attraction this year, folk song competitions were organised by several local organisations at Subash Road here.
Bus services in the city were cancelled till 2 p.m. By 3 p.m., life in the city was back to normal. No untoward incidents were reported.
