Photo Friday: Color Festival


bikaner colour kid

One thing India has plenty of is C O L O R. From saris to spices, temples to tacky decorations, it’s no secret that Indians love their color & Hindus love their color festivals. Our experience was on Ganesh‘s birthday when a random guy dragged us into the middle of this fun but messy event in Bikaner. Singing, dancing & COLOR all following a truck blazing music down the city’s busy streets, a cloud of colored powder surrounding them. This kid was having the time of his life, running around, singing as loud as he could, and throwing color on anyone unlucky enough to pass by him.

The big color festival is Holi, in spring time, but Hindus love their color so much it comes out for any & every possible occasion. A fun festival for all… unless you’re wearing white!
