Holi is popularly known as the festival of colors and is celebrated with full enthusiasm in north Indian states. This is the time to prepare special sweets called gujiya; sing and dance on folk tunes; apply colors and throw color water on each other. This festival comes every year but this year it was special for me. I celebrated this with the villagers of Sarmoli village.
Here is the sneak peak into the Holi I celebrated with these lovely people through the pictures.
Mother and daughter are here to celebrate Holi together!
The women singing and dancing on folk songs
Everyone comes together to celebrate the festival
Local instruments to give beats to the folk tunes
This is the time when relatives from other villages also come
The fit older woman of the village enjoying dancing to the tunes of Holi
She is just lost in dancing to the tunes of Holi; a sight that I enjoy
Meanwhile, the children are busy playing their own little games
Now another woman comes to dance to the tunes of Holi
The pretty girls are playing their own game
Now its time for everyone to come together and celebrate
We all sit in a circle and interact with each other
In between there are small performances of the guests from Dublin
A lovely song sung by a teacher from Dublin School
