Hindu Holi

On April 17, the Hindu Students Association (HSA) at Georgetown University held a belated celebration of Holi, also known as “the festival of colors.” After a brief prayer service, students gathered to throw dye-filled water balloons and colored powder at each other to mark the arrival of spring. Listen to Georgetown students Ronak Parikh, HSA vice president; Proshanti Banerjee, HSA special events coordinator; and Sohini Sircar, HSA president, talk about the meaning of this Hindu holiday.
