Easter was wrapped up in an explosion
of color for us this year. The Saturday before Easter was the holiday called
Holi in India. It is an occasion for people to go out and throw colored
dye all over each other (and drink milkshakes laced with marijuana, but
that is a different story). It is rooted in the same primal source as Easter:
it is spring, the time when everything is 'reborn,' and so people need
to find a way to celebrate that.
Our day was a little less involved than
some of these peoples' (and
more traumatic as well in some ways!), but we managed to see and enjoy
just being in India for such a unique holiday.
