Except for the cinnamon crumb cake, which was half baked and is really noticeable in the picture too, the food at Forage was really good. (Not on pics) Had iced coffee latte and took a sip of heimang red tea which was really good. I really wanted to try more of the pork dishes on the menu but may be will go there again after few days. I still remember how good the smoked pork with lomba was, which I tried last year. #foodies#foodoholic#Manipur
Just to recap (on my scattered posts on Manipur's 5 day Holi celebration - Yaoshang)
Holika dahan is celebrated on the day before Holi to symbolize Lord Vishnu killing the demon Holika by burning her to save his no. 1 devotee prahlad. The manipuris put up temp huts and burn it after a puja.
The first celebration on the day of Holi begins in Lord Krishna temples for it is after all Krishna's festival.
The next days go by where young and old go door to door to perform dol jatra and collect donations for the local community's sports meet, moonlit evening dance events and general merriment.
