Smiles during Holi

Each year, with the arrival of spring, India is flooded with color. Green harmony, vitality blue, red of passion and orange from optimism. A party full of colors and water with a religious background. An event which also celebrated the spring with an explosion of vitality, prior to the long months of lethargy produced by the stifling heat that paralyzes the Indian population during the summer. This man celebrates Holi in Nandgaon, one of the most significant places during the Festival.
