Growing up in the southern confines of Chennai, I was walled from how the rest of India celebrated a festival called Holi. The Chennai I knew started in Thiruvanmiyur and ended in Mylapore, with my catchment area being Adayar and Besant Nagar. Since growing over 30, I have had the opportunity to attend the Holi function outside Chennai, to witness what a fun festival it is. I thought I shall document some of my shots of how India plays Holi. If you have an opinion on Holi as a function, do head to the comments box, and lets get a conversation going. Tell me places that I can go to cover holi!
Love the way the girl is surrounded in a pool of Holi Colours and is not done yet!
I quite love the way different colours come into the frame. Pretty much like how different people co-exist in a single space!
Like the energy in the frame, with all that Holi Powder visible as particles.
The mad scramble for Holi Powder on the Cart
Like the way the guy is emptying all his holi powder, before he heads home!
View from the change rooms! Holi party never stops!
The Blue clouds of powder look surreal. Or is it just Surf Washing Powder 🙂 ?
Lord Krishna is on Earth. Coming soon to a Holi Party near you!
When the blues get over, Pink Power takes over!
When Pink Power needs a makeover!
From the blue Zone to the Pink Zone!
The kids shaking a leg to some music and targeting innocent bystanders!
Kids enjoying at the holi celebrations!
Kids are Killing it! My son playing Holi, and loving being dirty in green!
Me with my son at the Holi Celebration!
