Every spring in India, Hindus all across the country celebrate Holi - the festival of colors. It is tradition to toss colored powder into the air, signifying the triumph of ‘good’ over ‘evil’ and allowing people the liberty to celebrate the beauty of a new season in a creative way.
BBC had this to say:
Holi is a great leveller. By the time everyone has been covered in paint and coloured water, it’s pretty hard to see any of the normal clues as to who is what caste, or what class. And because no-one is likely to take designer clothes out for a soaking, there’s not much chance of seeing who is rich and who is poor.
And once it hits the ground…
Now that’s a celebration I’d like to attend.
