"Holi is a time to reach out with the colors of joy. It is the time to love and forgive. It is the time expresses the happiness of being loved and to be loved through colors."

Cultural activities such as these help students assimilate and appreciate the richness and diversity of not just the local culture but also go a long way in enhancing the social and cultural fabric.

Shrividya students enjoy splashing eco-friendly colours on friends. It is a great experience for everyone as the festival of Holi which signifies the coming together of different communities and the celebration of the spirit of universal brotherhood.
