On March 18, 2000, the Fresno Bee reported the the Hindu Temple of Fresno in northeast Clovis is preparing to celebrate the joyful spring festival of Holi. This festival is celebrated with color: balloons filled with colored water and dry dyes are thrown at and by participants. The temple includes a sanctuary with representations of the multiple gods and goddesses of the Hindu faith, a kitchen, library and an office. And it is already in need of expansion. "This is too crowded. We had 200 people at the last service," said Dr. Saigal, a founding member.
