Happy Holi!!! (+ legendă) » Hindus Celebrate Holi In India

BARSANA, INDIA – MARCH 21: Hindu devotees play with color during Lathmaar Holi celebrations on March 21, 2013 in the village of Barsana, near Mathura, India. The tradition of playing with colours on Holi 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 himself 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.
