Festival for All

Holi, also known as the Festival of Colors, is a Hindu celebration of spring. During the celebrations, participants fling colored powder on each other as they dance to music. One participant in Vrindavan, Uttar Pradesh, India, was this woman with paralysis. Your Shot photographer Raj Sarkar says that she may be 102 years old, "but her courage is huge."
