Festival of Color XI

Sakharibazar, Old DHaka, Bangladesh, 2011

 

Holi, or Holli is a spring religious festival celebrated by Hindus. The main day, Holi, also known as Dhuli Vandana in Sanskrit, also Dhulheti, Dhulandi or Dhulendi, is celebrated by people throwing coloured powder and coloured water at each other. Holi is celebrated at the end of the winter season on the last full moon day of the lunar month Phalguna (February/March), (PhalgunPurnima), which usually falls in the later part of February or March.

 

This is the first time I have attend any Holi festival. Those who still didn’t see or experienced this color festival missed something’s u cant imagine.
