Holi

Also known as Fagu or the ‘Festival of Colours’, this festival happens late in the dry season with water being sprayed around to remind people of the cooling monsoon days to come. The reason it has the ‘Festival of Colours’ tag is that coloured powder is also thrown everywhere; if you’re a foreigner you’ll probably get covered in the powder (it’s all in good fun) so leave your camera at home and wear old clothes.
