JNU on HOLIday: Festival of Colours in Photos


Holi is a spectacular site all across India, but it takes on a special meaning at JNU.

On Thursday morning, throngs of students across disparate political parties and social groups converged on Jhelum lawns to bask in their shared love of rainbow colours and immeasurable quantities of bhang. The festival moved some to such extremes as ambush water gun attacks, mud fights, and t-shirt destruction. But for the grand majority, the festival of colours was a stunningly beautiful day of shared intimacy and joy.
