Hindus Celebrate Holi In India

NANDGAON, INDIA - MARCH 22: A group of women beat a man holding a shield over his head with sticks during Lathmar Holi celebrations on March 22, 2013 in the village of Nundgaon near Mathura, India. The tradition of playing with colours on Holi draws its roots from a legend of Radha and the Hindu God Krishna. It is believed that young Krishna was jealous of Radha's fair complexion since he himself was himself very dark. After questioning his mother Yashoda on the darkness of his complexion, Yashoda, teasingly asked him to color Radha's face in which ever color he wanted. In a mischievous mood, Krishna applied color on Radha's face. The tradition of applying color on one's beloved is being religiously followed until today. (Photo by Daniel Berehulak/Getty Images)
