india festival

"Colorful days, solemn rituals, joyous celebrations - Holi is a boisterous occasion! Draped in white, people throng the streets in large numbers and smear each other with bright hued powders and squirt coloured water on one another through pichkaris (big syringe-like hand-pumps), irrespective of caste, color, race, sex, or social status; all these petty differences are temporarily relegated to the background and people give into an unalloyed colorful rebellion. There is exchange of greetings, the elders distribute sweets and money, and all join in frenzied dance to the rhythm of the drums."

all via dirty blonde.

I couldn't resist, this seems so insanely magnificent. I want in.

It really is beautiful! and its also a time to flirt! haha, because just as casts and divisions are let down on this occasion, its also a chance for girls and boys to hang out and dance together irrespective of what their parents may think. you must go!

Yeah i'm obsessed. The colors make me really happy there is something magical about them. Like those little foil easter eggs that I can stare at for hours.
