Powdered Paint: The Great Equalizer

Written by

Holi 2011—it happened just this morning in front of Pupin! Scores of Columbia students gathered to engage in the powdered paint fight that is Holi, a whimsically carefree Hindu celebration of spring. This Bwogger (post-shower, thankfully—that paint is super hard to get out of your hair!) can honestly say that the sense of Columbia community at this event was palpable. Participants even broke out into a chorus of “Roar, Lion, Roar!” Seriously guys, when does that ever happen?! Enjoy the photos, friends. If you missed out, make sure you check it out next year!

    At the 84th St Loew's Cinema right before Harry Potter in November. You reported about it, Bwog.
