As the Holi in Mumbai

Holly is considered one of the most interesting and colorful festivals of the world. He came to us from the sun of India, where it symbolizes the arrival of spring. Locals on holiday fall into childhood, pour water and passers showered each other with colored inks. Our present author - Dmitry went to the heart of India, Mumbai and saw everything with my own eyes.

Later in the afternoon, on the eve of the festival in the streets began to appear numerous little shops with colored paint for Holi. The small bag costs just 20 rupees, we about 10 rubles.

The Indians are beginning to celebrate Holi in the early morning. I met them at once, leaving the hotel.

Holi - a favorite holiday of local children.

Half an hour later I meet a group of foreign students who, like me, came to Mumbai specifically to participate in the festival.
