Next week sees India celebrate 2 of it's most colourful festivals. The Holi festival which takes place on the day after the full moon in the Hindu month of Phalguna. People celebrate the occasion by throwing brightly coloured spices or herbal powders into the air - symbolically they are ridding the gloom of winter and rejoicing in the colours and liveliness of spring. The Hola Mohalla Sikh Festival is celebrated in the north and includes bareback horse riding, sword fighting and much much more!
