Photo of the Day: India Prepares for Holi, the Festival of Colors

Indian villagers smear themselves with colors during the Lathmar Holi festival at the Nandji Temple in Nandgaon, some 120 kms from New Delhi, on March 3, 2012. The women of Nandgaon, the hometown of the Hindu God Krishna, attack the men from Barsana, the hometown of Radha, (consort of Krishna), with wooden sticks — a reenactment of the legend of Lord Krishna, who was chased away by Radha and her friends after teasing them.
