Holi Celebration | Pictures From Jaipur

Here are a few pictures from the Holi celebration party in Jaipur. Friends and family get together to color each other using colors, Abeer/Gulal. Gulal is a powder prepared using natural substances like flowers, leaves, etc. Gulal has been used traditionally to play Holi. The ancient preparation method involved using organic and herbal ingredients which do not harm the skin. However, most colors are prepared using chemicals and are harmful to the skin.

    1. Thank You! It sure is a unique festival.. people used to take liberty in stepping over the usual norms on occassion of holi and it was not objected to…that was long back though, things have changed. But even to this day, holi is associated with being naughty and fun. People would joke about each other and laugh together. So in a way, this festival was different. Thanks for your comments! 🙂
