Color for festival

Two young boys mix colors at a dye-making business in Delhi, India. The blood-red brew is blended with corn flour then spread on a roof for drying. The resulting powder is then ready to be tossed by celebrants of India's colorful Holi festival.

Very interesting post and the photo is nice too. I saw that you have NCR in your profile. I worked there after I was discharged from the Army, 53 years ago. I worked in Research and Development and then in Military Equipment where we designed and make rescue beacons used by downed pilots in Vietnam. Gosh that was a long time ago.
