Colour Festival at Barsana
Holi is a festival of colour & is celebrated all over India. It is also celebrated by Indians residing out of India

But in Barsana celebrations start a week earlier than rest of India. Men of Nandagaon (place where Lord Krishna grew up) raid Barsana (place where Radha grew up) with hopes of raising their flag over Shri Radhikaji's temple. They receive a thunderous welcome as the women of Barsana greet them with long wooden sticks. The men are soundly beaten as they attempt to rush through town to reach the relative safety of Shri Radhikaji's temple. Men are well padded as they are not allowed to retaliate. In this mock battle the men try their best not to be captured. Unlucky captives can be forcefully lead away, thrashed and dressed in female attire before being made to dance!!

In short the celebration of Holi bears witness to a feeling of oneness and sense of brother-hood and creates a colourful atmosphere .
