Shahnaz Husain On the pious occasion of Holi we would do well to remember that the dry "Gulal" and the wet Holi colours of today contain many harmful chemical substances. Among these are dyes, shiny particles of mica, lead, powdered glass, acids and alkalis. These substances are not bio-degradable.
