In Bengal, Holi is called `Dol Yatra` or the swing festival. Traditionally the festival is celebrated with idols of Krishna and Radha are placed on swings and devotees take turns to swing them. Women dance around the swing and sing devotional songs as men spray coloured water and powder called `Abeer`. However recent trend doesn`t see much of those traditions. People play with colored waters powders in the morning. And later take out processions on the streets with bands and with faces and bodies covered with Holi colours.
