When you walk by the streets of Pushkar like this case, or everyelse in India, you will find streetshops selling powder colors, almost a week before the main day. The Holi.

Then you will have enought time to prepare what to do, many people (tourists) don't dare to go out his hotels this day. There is such a splash of color that you better wear old clothes becouse you will not recognize them again.

They mix this powders with water, and everyone is throwing the powders to everyone, and when you are out in the street better be prepared of a color fight.

The festival welcomes the spring and the season of love in Honor of Krishna, who played in his times throwing colors to his many lovers.
