Adhunik Holi has many new things that were not the tradition in the past. With that, there are many traditions that people have forgotten now. In the past, the festival was more about spreading love, forgetting sorrows, and improving the inner self. Now it is more about enjoyment and food.
Adhunik color play on Holi:
In old times, people used to play Holi of colors with organic colors. For color water, they also used to add natural color in the water, and that’s it. But now, as Holi colors are in demand. People use artificial colors that are readily available and are cheaper too. There are a lot of side effects of using these colors, but people forget this fact for the sake of enjoyment. They now use smoke bombs, snow spray, paint, and color cylinders to play Holi, which was not even a concept in the past.
Playing Loud Music:
In the past, people used to dance on the beats of dhol while celebrating Holi. But now, Bollywood songs are replacing the dhol as people can easily play the song of their choice anywhere any time in whatever volume. So the ease of playing songs has replaced the traditional dhol.

As all the recipes are easily accessible and the taste for the food is also became vast. Also, people want a variety of dishes to be on the menu. They want variety, not only in the main course, but in the drinks, appetizers, sweet dishes, snacks, and side dishes too.
