‘Festival of Colors’

Colors ruled the streets as people of all ages with faces and clothes smeared in myriad of hues celebrated #Holi , a harvest festival which marks the onset of spring season in India.

The ‘Festival of Colors’ saw revelers pour onto streets across the country, smearing and splashing powder, known as ‘gulal’ and water on others to celebrate the triumph of good over evil.

Water-filled balloons were hurtled down from rooftops and balconies as cries of ‘Holi hai’ reverberated the streets.

From youngsters and the elderly to the widows of Vrindavan, the ‘gulal’ spared none as revellers danced to the accompaniment of drums.

A relatively warm day paved way for a perfect Holi, as colored water drenched people inside and outside homes, bidding adieu to winter.
