Holi – the Festival of Colors

More than anything, these photos just made me want to travel and for lack of a better word, experience. They’re from a variety of sources, check out The Boston Globe for all their credits. Holi is celebrated in India as a welcoming of Spring, and a celebration of the triumph of good over evil. What that translates to in action is an enthusiastic dropping of inhibitions, as people chase each other and playfully splash colorful paint, powder and water on each other. People also attend bonfires to commemorate the story of Prahlada, a Hindu figure and devout follower of Lord Vishnu who prevailed over his father and the demoness Holika with the power of his devotion.
