Holi : The various shades of celebrating goodness

March 16, 2014 221 0 0

This day, this month every year, colours splash and everyone enjoys turning black and blue! No no, don’t think too much. This is the festival of Holi. Holi has been one of the most famous festival of India and of course for Indians, especially from the north. From the peculiar holy play style in Mathura (where women playfully lash out sticks at men) to the oil paints and water splashing, this is a festival for the young hearted. Amidst the happy riot of colours you can see various shades of human celebration. A day to celebrate the win of the good over the bad, this is one festival you should attempt to be a part of, if you are in India. Instead of going all yada yada over the history of this festival, we bring you the best of its shades. Check it out!
