Splash of Colour

India celebrated this year’s Holi festival with a splash of colour; a traditional festival held throughout to welcome spring. The tradition of playing with colours on Holi also 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 very dark. After questioning his mother Yashoda on the darkness of his complexion, Yashoda, teasingly asked him to colour Radha's face in which ever colour he wanted. In a mischievous mood, Krishna applied colour on Radha's face. The tradition of applying color on one's beloved is being religiously followed till date. Phot: Getty Images
