Pictures : Celebrating the colourful festival of Holi

Dear friends,

Happy Holi!

This year, I’ll share few more pictures from Braj Holi, the most colourful version of Holi, that is celebrated in a group of small villages around Vrindavan, Uttar Pradesh. For those who have no idea about this festival can read everything about it in the story I did for Hindustan Times.

You can read it here :

Hope you like them.

Cheers!
