Bhubaneswar: A day ahead of Holi, it was a sight to behold over 50 children smearing colour on each other at Madhur Mayee Adarsha Siksha Niketan, a hostel for children of jail inmates, located adjacent to Jharpada Special Jail in Bhubaneswar.

The festival of colours has always brightened the lives of these children, with various celebrities, social activities and dignitaries joining the fun and various delicacies at their disposal.

All of them celebrate Holi together accompanied by various cultural activities including 'Dandiya Dance' and breaking of 'Dahi Handi', which is a much-awaited event for the children.

Children here have taken it as their home and consider each other as their brother and sister. Celebrating Holi with over 50 siblings is a unique experience which they could not have received elsewhere.
