Entry Description: The Holi Festival, a traditional Hindu festival which celebrates the end of winter and the start of spring was made famous by the celebrated reports by the photographer S. McCurry who gave back the colourful and spectacular aspects as well as the mystic dimension to the festival. What remains of the holi festival in the major cities of India’s economic progress? Certainly the carnival and transgressive aspects peppered with dust and colours but in a more bourgeois, rock manner among incursions of motorbikes and modern balls reserved mainly for young people in the street.
