    Happy Holi

    Today (20th March), we celebrated Holi in India. Holi is known as the festival of colours. Here are a few shots from today. C&C are welcome, as always.

    Those are some cool shots! I like the focus and DOF in the first one. Is that someone's arm on his shoulder?

    Thanks, Sahil, for the link - it's wonderfully interesting to learn about this celebration, see your culture and to see your beautiful (and, er, very colorful) photos. It, looks like everyone's having so much fun!

    Oh, its a long reading I know. Well in short it helluva fun. Its about colours, water, throwing water balloons, throwing eggs, distributing sweets, taking off the silencers off the two wheelers & breaking the rules. (cops give li'l relaxation that day for sometime)
    Some quality of colours take 5-7 days to get off the skin. Hehe... So we apply good amount of oil on our skin so that colours go off easily.
    I didn't play holi, this year & last year as we had had some mishaps amongst of relatives in last two years. We don't celebrate any festival if we lose someone close amongst close relatives. So I went around in car with my friends & took these shots
