The most colourful and vibrant summer event will be Holi, the annual Indian festival featuring popular merrymaking, the throwing of natural coloured powders called gulal and water spraying. The only thing the Russians changed in this borrowed beautiful tradition is the timing: in India, it’s spring, but, due to climatic differences, the Russians celebrate Holi in summer. Organizers of the Holi Festival of Colours in Moscow prepared a very eventful programme including traditional mehndi designs and body art, master classes in Indian dances and children’s entertainers.© 2016-2019 moscovery.com
