Holi From Above

Written by

Tipster John Gardner sends photos our way of the Hindu Students Organization’s Holi festival. The annual springtime celebration features 1500 lbs. of paint for throwing at your friends and promises (threats?) of supersoakers. There will also be a classical dance performance explaining the origins of the celebration. It’s happening til around 2ish on the EC/IAB plaza.

    Filthy Pagans! It is lustful vanity for a woman to wear colors.

    If my friends and I did this, we'd have a disciplinary hearing.

  10. wtf  

    the hindu students org kids were all just taking pictures with eachother. seemed like it was less about the holiday and more about them increasing their tag total.....lame

    • true dat  

      no culture or religion that celebrates its holidays with friends/family commemorates the occasion by taking pictures. also it is completely unreasonable for those hindus to take pictures with their friends when they are covered from head to toe in paint -- that shit happens every day. TOTALLY lame!

    • are  

      you mad that taal kids werent taking photos of you?
