The Colors of Holi 2012
Across India and the Hindu world, people are celebrating Holi. Taking place on the last full moon of the lunar month, Holi is a festival commemorating Krishna's pranks and the arrival of spring. Hindus celebrate the holiday by throwing colorful powders on their friends and acquaintances in large, public gatherings.
I recently came across a photo essay inThe Atlantic that shows the brilliant colors and jubilant crowds celebrating Holi 2012. Check it out!
