The reDiscovery Podcast – Ep2: Holi in Barsana!

It’s time for Holi (yaay!!) and Episode 2  of The reDiscovery Podcast takes you out of your building compound and into the streets of Uttar Pradesh to experience this unique celebration.

Get into the spirit of Holi in the villages of Barsana and Nandgaon and play the way they have for generations, where for a week people come together and celebrate, drenched in colour, bhang and song. Don’t miss the traditional lathmar, an age old tradition, where the village women playfully beat off the advances of men with sticks.

Once you’ve heard the episode, check out our pictures from when we celebrated Holi in Braj.
