Times Of India — Irrelevant information about Holi Festival published

Hi, there was an article published in Times of India news paper on 21st March 2026 written by Anoothi Vishal.

I need your assistance to understand 2 points regarding the article:
1. There is image in article featuring 'Biryani' whereas 'Gujiyas and Papadi' are mainly cooked and enjoyed. This has been written in the article as well. Can you help me to understand, is it not an attempt to promote certain food only in the name of festval?
2. Holi festival is linked with story of Bhakt Prahalad and Holika. However, information like : "Aab-e pashi", "It was celebrated with the same spirit of joy by Mughal aris .." etc. etc. featuring Mughals is presented here.

This whole article seems an attempt an attempt to change the narrative of people by providing irrelevant information of very famous festival of Hindus? What are the intentions behind it?

May i request your kind assistance to help me understand above highlighted pointers please?

For anyone and everyone, please go through the article below published in Times of India new paper:
