Did you guess what was happening correctly?

You wouldn’t want to wear your favourite outfit in India during the Hindu festival Holi which starts this evening this year. Also known as the festival of colours, Holi mainly celebrates the arrival of spring. 

The festival lasts a night and a day, starting on the evening of Purnima, or Full Moon Day. The following day, clouds of colour fill the streets, and people spray each other with water so the coloured powder sticks. 

Anyone and everyone is fair game, man or woman, children and elders, local or tourist.

This photo shows a trio of girls in northern India who are giving each other a makeover to match their technicolour outfits.
