Holi: Rang de Bahrain

Every year, thousands of Indians participate in the festival of Holi. It celebrates the beginning of the new season, spring. Originally, it was a festival that commemorated good harvests and the fertile land. Hindus believe it is a time of enjoying spring’s abundant colors and saying farewell to winter.

What is Rang de Bahrain?

The concept behind organizing the Rang de Bahrain festival is to bring the Indian color festival to the Kingdom and also promote Bahrain as a warm and hospitable destination where people from different communities, cultures, and different walks of life can come and enjoy themselves.

 

 

I attended Rang de Bahrain in Marina Club with some friends to shoot some colourful photos and get coloured ourselves!
