Holi, the festival of colors, was celebrated this year on 27th and 28th of March all over India. I decided to move to my own village, Kasturwa and then to Surya’s Village, Shiv Patti, on this occasion. Here are some images from the events  taken with my Nokia device, which I thought were worth sharing. Happy Holi!

ENJOY READING! Err… viewing.

Rangoli

Rangoli is one of the most beautiful arts made on festivals in Uttar Pradesh. The below one isn’t that good, but fair enough to be shared.
