Balloon Splash is another all-time hit. The most unique celebration has to be the multani mitti pond, ”he tells CE.
He adds, “This year, we will be using organic colors to celebrate the festival. People have been growing increasingly particular about what goes on their faces and bodies. There will also be a live band and a DJ party with some exotic food and thandai. “
