Blast of Color

On the eve of the springtime Holi Festival, a priest at the Radha Krishna Temple in Kolkata throws color to devotees in a blessing believed to protect them against disease throughout the year, says Your Shot contributor Sandipa Malakar, who had long desired a chance to depict the festival in her own way.

“I went to the temple to experience the essence of the festival, which started with prayer followed by the throwing of colored water on the devotees. I took this shot as the priest threw white colored powder after showering devotees with red.”
