On 8 March 2023 The Associated Press reported: Hundreds of women in two north Indian towns celebrated 'Holi,' the Hindu festival of colors, by playfully hitting men with wooden sticks in response to their teasing as part of a ritual. The men wore turbans and held shields above their heads to protect themselves from the women's hits in the mock battle. After two years of subdued revelry due to COVID-19, the Holi celebrations that began last week recreated the legend of the Hindu god Krishna spraying his consort Radha and her friends with red, yellow, green, and saffron colors. ...Holi traditions vary across India. In most parts, the holiday will be celebrated on Wednesday [this year], turning the streets and lanes into playgrounds with people of all faiths joining the festivities. They also include water balloons and squirt guns. Holi, which marks the advent of spring, is widely celebrated in India, Nepal, and other countries with large Indian subcontinent diaspora populations.
