Holi, the celebration of love.
Holi is the festival of color that is celebrated throughout India and which commemorates the beginning of spring, the ending of the harvest as well as the triumph of good against evil.
The young throw around powders of different colors to wish each other love, fortune and vitality whilst dancing and singing in the streets and temples.
In the north of India Rada’s divine love for Krishna is celebrated.
The women pretend to hit the men who protect themselves with shields to recreate the goddess’ anger against Krishna’s mischief.
