Yesterday marked the official beginning of spring in India, as the country’s people celebrated the Holi festival, which brings color to life.
Holi got its name as the “Festival of Colors” from Lord Krishna, a reincarnation of Lord Vishnu, who liked to play pranks on the villagers by drenching them in colors and water. People spend the day smearing colored powder all over each other’s faces, throwing colored water at each other, having parties and dancing under water sprinklers.
