Happy Holi in Shimla!

Happy Holi-victim in the hills.

The day on which we took our nice hike to the Viceregal Lodge also happened to be Holi, the Indian festival of colour. Even though our walk was mostly in the nature, we saw many people coloured by the powder which is thrown around on Holi. This was my third Holi in India - I also experience this nice festival in 2006 and 2007.

Village kids playing Holi.

Apparently this group only had purple colour.

Another Holi-victim, this one at the Viceregal Lodge.

Yet another.

Even I didn't escape the colouring, although no one dares colour Nitoli. The dog, who followed us the entire day, we named Rocky.
