Happy Holi

Holi is a Hindu religious festival that celebrates the victory of good over evil, the end of winter and the arrival of spring. The date is determined according to the Hindu Calendar and changes every year on the Gregorian Calendar. It usually falls between the end of February and the beginning of March.

Holi is also know as a festival of colors. People play and chase each other with colored powder and water. It’s a lot fun! I took these pictures in Jaipur during Holi 2016.
