Holi, an ancient Hindu religious festival celebrated in India and across the world, came to the Homewood campus Sunday, marking the arrival of spring. Hundreds of eager students mobilized at The Beach to celebrate this annual spectacle, in its 14th year at Hopkins. Revelers launched splashy shades of red, yellow, green, and blue at one another, creating a kaleidoscope of colors and blurring the distinction between individuals. A traditional Indian meal followed the color war. The festival of colors emerged in India as an opportunity to break down barriers, allowing all to mingle and celebrate this joyous occasion, new beginnings, and triumphs over evils.
Holi was presented by two Johns Hopkins student groups, Association for India's Development and the Hindu Students Council, and supported by the Graduate Representative Organization, The Graduate Student Association, and a Student Life Programming Grant.
