Holi @ IIM-Indore

Being a South Indian means you are only exposed to soft 'Holi' where at most a few colour powders were sprinkled on your face and dress. But now in IIM-Indore, as a 2008 PGP Batch we have a few traditions to live up to. Hearing senior's narrations and reading from super senior's blog, My expectations for the Holi celebrations were running high.

Tearing up T-shirts(only boys'!!!!), painting whole hostel blocks with colours, Rolling up people in the 'holi' water pool, Drenching them in mud pool, Bath in coloured waterfalls. It was all i expected to be. Hope the photos conveys the fun we had.

Hmm.. Another year passes by and another Holi celebrated in this Planet-i. Another South Indian comes to know the ecstasy of 'Holi'.

@ Katrina,
Being a South Indian, I can say for sure that Holi is not a festival of the South... Thanks to the Indian media, it is slowly catching up in the cities(particularly among the youth).. But large parts of South India still don't know or don't celebrate Holi..

Holi celebrated across the globe!!!.. [I can only smile at this statement]..

But i surely accept that Holi is fun.. :)
