Indore (Madhya Pradesh): The Radha Krishna Phaag Yatra, which is taken out by Hind Rakshak organisation every year will be taken out this year too. Herbal colour made from flowers of Tesu ( Flame of the forest) has been made by the organisation in large quantity to be used on the occasion.

Hind Rakshak president Aklavya Gaur shared a video in which he demonstrated the method of making herbal colour using Tesu flowers.

He said that the members of Hind Rakshak and others who volunteer for the work first pick quintals of Tesu flowers from trees and collect them at a place. The flowers are then cleaned and boiled in water. In this process the flowers release colour and the water turns saffron, said Gaur.
