Happy Holi! This lovely festival brings bright colours to our otherwise dull lives. Even though this festival can be a great reason to celebrate and have fun, there are also times when we make it a little toxic.

Today, several women have spoken about the harassment they face on this day in the name of fun. Touching a person without their consent is harassment. However, on Holi, people tend to forget this as they say "Bura na maano Holi hai."

Women are taking to social media today to share how they have been harassed on Holi as people touch them without their consent. Twitter is buzzing with women showing solidarity to each other. They are also explaining to others that one should not use the festival as an excuse to harass someone.
