HoliBe the first to comment 28 February 2010
Hindu devotees play with colour during Holi celebrations at the Bankey Bihari Temple on February 26, 2010 in Vrindavan, India. The tradition of playing with colours on Holi draws its roots from a legend of Radha and the Hindu God Krishna. It is believed that young Krishna was jealous of Radha's fair complexion since he himself was very dark. After questioning his mother Yashoda on the darkness of his complexion, Yashoda, teasingly asked him to colour Radha's face in which ever colour he wanted. In a mischievous mood, Krishna applied colour on Radha's face. The tradition of applying colour on one's beloved has been religiously followed till date.
