3/29/2005: Festival of colors celebrated in color



These are part of Holi celebrations, the festival of colors, in the eastern Indian city of Calcutta. Says here color dust is extensively used in the Hindu religious festival of Holi, which heralds the beginning of spring and is celebrated with great enthusiasm all over India.

All this from a country that is short on fresh drinking water, I certainly hope they are using water from the river and not out of drinking bottles.

HELL I see a wet sari (?) contest in the makeing !!!!!

I don't think I'd want to be breathing that neon pixie dust.

do you think there are a lot of tweekers that participate in the festival? with all the colors like that you could have someone hooked for days.

Darn it!! I no longer have anyone to ask about this. Our American to Foreign shrink ratio is way off right now (we have three americans to two foreigns now, although one of the american docs is technically foreign, as he got his MD at University of Bologna, Italy). We also are entirely depleted of Indians. (ohm, not woo woo) I've got a Pakistani, but he's muslim and won't know anything about this infidel pagan practices, heck he barely knows anything about Islam, slacked off as a kid in religious school ... and the Indian doc who is still working nearby that I could call up and ask, well she was raised Catholic.

Maybe I can find an Indian nut to ask ... nope. This week's batch includes Korean, Romanian, and Persian (Iranian who fled before the Shah fell).

So the mystery will continue. Until I hit google.

i read that. wasn't paying attention so i reread it. i am now cleaning french fry debris off my keyboard. literally. thanks wolf for your silly humor.

Jag - tweeker can be used in reference to someone who uses meth, extacy, lsd, etc. in this case i was referring to X and lsd users.

I'm sure they've got hash over there that would do the trick.

Pics of a Texas Holi

I went to a local Holi celebration here in Texas, at the Barsana Dham Hindu temple (near Austin). Great, great fun, a very joyful time. Running around with my camera in a ziplock bag, I was quickly covered in fine fluorescent pink dust by all manner of celebrants, little kids to old men, who would run up to me, cry "Happy Holi!", and smear some of the stuff on me. Later there was free Indian food for all. Afterwards I went with friends to an ice cream store and we recieved many curious (friendly) looks.
