Holi, the Hindu festival of colors, marks the beginning of spring and is celebrated throughout the Indian subcontinent on the last full moon of the winter season. Revelers dance, play, and shower one another with brightly colored powder, called gulal. Above, Indian revelers play Huranga at The Dauji Temple in Mathura, south of New Delhi, on March 18. Huranga is a game played between men and women a day after Holi, the festival of colors, during which men drench women with liquid colors and women tear off the clothes of the men.
