Myriad colors of the holi festival reflect the diversity and the richness of Indian culture. The festival of Holi is a celebration of colors, joy, and unity, while the dreams and aspirations of kids who belong to below poverty line are about hope, opportunities, and a better future. Both Holi and the aspirations of these children are closely related, as they represent the essence of life – the pursuit of happiness and the desire to overcome obstacles.

Just as the colors of Holi bring people together, the dreams and aspirations of these children bring them hope and motivation to overcome their circumstances. For them, education is the key to a better future, and the mid-day meal program by Akshaya Patra is one of the ways to ensure that they receive this education. The program not only provides them with a nutritious meal but also encourages them to attend school regularly and pursue their dreams.
