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!

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.

  1. These pictures capture so much emotion! This looks like so much fun, similar to a Carnaval we have in Colombia, except we do black and white. I like the colors a lot more! How’d you keep your camera clean?! Lol

    1. Thanks Ana! Can you help me know more about this Columbia Carnaval? I’d love to know more on how is it Black and White. I had to clean the camera every hour with dry and wet cloth and also give it for service center cleaning the very next day. It is a risk

  2. Great pictures – that looks like so much fun! This is something that is really gaining popularity world wide, but I’d love to visit India to take part in it just once! Thanks for sharing.

  3. You have snapped some amazing pictures! Great job! I come from Greece and we have something similar, it is called Color Day Festival! And they bring DJs and everyone is dancing πŸ™‚ I think we might have stolen it from you! Hehe! xx

  4. One of the best festival, water is also included along with dry colors and as much I have traveled across India, every place has something unique about how they play holi. Well clicked pics, keep it up πŸ™‚

  5. This always looks like a lot of fun. I don’t know too much about the history behind this festival but it sure does look awesome. I’m sure you had loads of fun all the times you have gone.

  6. I loved this post! I love India this festival is on my bucket list great photo’s i felt like i was there what a happy place. Thank you!
