A colorful celebration of unity, brotherhood

JHU students gather to mark Holi, India's spring festival of color

On Saturday, Johns Hopkins students gathered on the Beach at the Homewood campus to celebrate Holi, India's spring festival of color. For Hindus in India and other countries, Holi traditionally marks the arrival of harvest as well as the spring season during the full moon of the lunar month of Phalgun. Holi is a time of the unity and brotherhood, a chance to set aside differences and celebrate. Participants cover themselves (and others) in brightly colored powder, blurring the distinctions between individuals. The event was organized by two Johns Hopkins student groups, Association for India's Development and the Hindu Students Council, and supported by the Alumni Association, the Graduate Representative Organization, a Student Life Programming Grant, and the Johns Hopkins Federal Credit Union.
