Inspired by popular Bollywood film Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara and Spains La Tomatina? festival shown in it, residents of Ahmedabad in Gujarat chose to celebrate Holi with tomatoes this year. People enjoyed the festival by smearing each other’s face with tomatoes.

Its criminal to destroy the farmers months of hard work and sweat for ones pleasure. What have we come to.

This is certainly not right as it’s not our culture or custom. It’s not tomatino festival, Its Holi! It could have fed many a poor family. Wrong move , shameful.

Very bad. Shd have been given to street animals as food instead. They sleep hungry
And this is food wastage

In stead of banning PUBG game. Ban these things. India is always known for respecting the food not wasting like this. And moreover holi is never celebrated with tomatoes
