Holi Festival

At work we have recently started on a couple of new projects in India.  Having never been there yet (fingers crossed!) I have absorbed myself in researching the country, the culture, the festivals, the people.  Quite frankly everything I can in order to assist in understanding India as a whole.

Part of my research threw up this wonderful snapshot of the Holi Festival shot by Variable in the incredible detail that 2500 frames per second can offer.

Holi is know an the Festival Of Colours, or the Spring Festival due to when it falls in the year (typically beginning of March).   It is celebrated with Holika Dahan prayer, and then the following day features the more expressive celebrations with people throwing coloured and lightly scented powder at each other shown in the video above.

Evocative and beautifully captured.
