Say hello to spring: celebrating Holi

Berkeleysider David Trachtenberg came across a glorious gathering on the campus Sunday and sent in these wonderful photographs. “I stumbled upon this amazing event at lower Sproul Plaza,” he writes. “It’s called the Holi Festival — a welcoming of Spring. Pure Joy!”

    Lovely! Plus now I know why the pavers in Lower Sproul were a different color this morning!

    These photos made me so happy. I did feel like they summarized why I am so grateful to be here. I blogged about them today: http://berkeleytoday.wordpress.com/2011/04/18/celebrating-diversity-we-are-all-here/
    Thank you for this moving, happy piece!

    Thanks for this! There was a lot of energy in the air Sunday night.. not to mention Holi…one of my favorite festivals. I’ve have experienced it numerous times in Vrindavan, (the place where Krishna lived in India)… what nostalgia.. Great to have this by the Bay.. Yay!!
