Let's greet the turn of winter into spring as Hindus
do all around the world celebrating the Holi festival,
that is to say with a splash of vibrant color.
That's why I pick out the gorgeous image of a Kolkata
boy being daubed in colored powder taken by Indian
photographer and filmmaker Jayanta Shaw who spent
years documenting the unique features of his home
country and is now working as a photojournalist for
Times of India daily newspaper after his workshop
at Reuters Foundation when he took the stunning
portrait. Holi 2013 starts today and will continue until
Thursday so let the colors shower bliss, Happy Dhulandi!
