Some pictures from the Holi festival at our university a while ago.
Exactly a month ago, Holi came to Upper Iowa. Holi is a Hindu spring festival, usually held in March and since we have a lot of Nepali students, this is our second year holding it. Our version is different in that it is much smaller, doesn’t have the original religious significance, and is held a month or so later. This is because Iowa in March is usually still too cold to be outside for a long time.
The main draw of Holi is the colors, specifically throwing colored powder at friends and strangers alike. It’s about having fun, and boy did the students (and staff) have fun.

Really? This time of the year? Holi is long gone though.

I’ve read about the event, but it’s fun to bring the event — albeit for cultural versus strictly religious reasons – to your campus. Bravo!

Wow, this great to know. Spirit of celebration , festivity and brotherhood should
spread far and wide. Holi represents all that.
