Holi is a popular Hindu spring festival also termed as the festival of colours.  It is an annual riotous celebration which falls on the day after full moon in March. Revellers spray coloured powder and water on each other with great gusto while bathing in the jolly atmosphere and vivid colours. —Photos by Agencies/text by AFP

Holi is an Indian festival and not a Hindu festival as asserted by the report.In India Muslims and christians also play Holi.

It's our mindset to call minority of Pakistani that's Hindu to be addressed as OUR ENEMY. It's shameful comment. In some provinces of India, minority Muslims citizenary make impact on Indian election to seek Muslim voters admiration in true spirit of DEMOCRACY

Wonderful pictures!! Thanks. Dawn has a very nice website, I think it is very clean and uncluttered and one of the best news websites. I usually go to Times of India but it is no comparison to Dawn as far as layout and design is concerned. Now if I could get all my India news from Dawn, then I would be happy. Keep up the good work.
