We realize that life has so many colors to offer, only on the occasion of festivals. The myriad colors of life can get us united with love and affection. It gives us an opportunity to forget all the pale, dark sides and enjoy life. Life becomes a great fun when we add colors to it. Colors can eliminate the differences between caste, race or social status. When every one is colorful, it is difficult to make out who belongs to which caste or creed. Isn't it? :-)
Holi, also known as the 'Festival of Colors', is a popular spring festival in India. On the first day, lighting up of bonfire at night signifies the triumph of good over bad.
People celebrate the second day, called as Dhulivandan, by playfully throwing powdered/water colors on each other. People of all ages celebrate this festival of colors.
This colorful festival removes the social gap. People renew friendly relationships by hugging and wishing each other "Happy Holi".
Just imagine if the whole world celebrates this festival of colors! Everyone will look the same, and all barriers and discrimination will vanish. The whole world will be tied together with the bonds of universal brotherhood. Dreams are bound to be idealistic! :-)
Well! I shot this picture at Walkeshwar. Light was too harsh inducing high contrast in the picture frame. Despite the harsh light I couldn't resist the temptation to shoot this colorful get-together of young, energetic street boys.
