Sparkle #40: Color Me Happy!

Hello everyone! Tomorrow, India will be celebrating Holi – the festival of colors and love. Holi is an ancient Hindu festival which marks the arrival of spring, and people celebrate it by playing with water and colors. Holi as a festival has limited religious rituals, with the entire day being reserved for merry-making. People spend the day partying, playing with colors and water, eating, drinking and just having a good time! It is one of my favorite festivals because it is so happy, full of color, positive, celebrates love and life and heralds new beginnings.

I am all set to play Holi tomorrow, and since I am busy with preparations (read eating sweets and filling water balloons), I will keep this post blessedly brief. Below are some of my favorite pictures of Holi celebrations from across India.

I wish all my readers a fun filled, happy, colorful Holi, and hope it brings lots of love and joy into everyone’s lives in 2015.

  1. Hello Jyo, I really love your photos and paintings. I have a blog about India called Couleur Indienne http://www.couleur-indienne.net and I like interviewing people linked to Indian culture and introducing their work on my pages. I’m working on my new layout and trying to find new elements for new articles and like to introduce your visions about Indian culture and colours by interviewing you and presenting your works
