Holi: The Festival of Colors


Early March saw the annual spring Festival of Color, or Holi, in the Hindu world.  If you are a clean freak, then Holi may not be for you.  As part of the festival it is people's religious duty to splatter, smatter and smother as many others as possible with colored paint and water.  As religious festivals go, this is one of the messier.

If you live in a large, multi-ethnic city virtually anywhere in the world it is a possibility that in the last week you have seen groups of people in parks merrily spattering each other with paint. While you might be excused for thinking that it is a new form of corporate team building - and what a great one that would be - you would be wrong. The throwing of multi-colored water and powder is in fact the popular Hindu spring Festival of Colors, also known as Holi.
