Mumbai [India], Mar 1 (ANI): A residential society in Mumbai is set to celebrate Holi in a unique way this time, where they will burn a replica of hookah, in the back drop of Kamala Mills fire which claimed 14 lives.
The curator of the replica, Sumit Pendharkar, said, "In this year's Holi, I want to convey a message that we should not consume hookah as it has caused the fire in Kamala Mills, which took several lives and it is too harmful for our health."
A major blaze had broken out in the Kamala Mills complex on December 29 last year, killing 14 people and injuring 12 others.
Separately, the residents of BDD Chawl in Mumbai's Worli area have created a 58-feet high effigy of businessman Nirav Modi, symbolising the evil character of Holika, to burn it as a part of the festival's tradition.
The residents have also considered the environmental factor in mind and have made the giant structure by using less wood and more of dry grass. (ANI)
