The festival of colors Holi is one of the major festivals of India, Holi is celebrated with enthusiasm and gaiety on the full moon day in the month of Phalgun which is the month of March as per the Gregorian calendar.Holi frolic and celebrations begin the morning after Holika bonfire (Days before the festival people start gathering wood and combustible materials for the bonfire in parks, community centers, near temples and other open spaces. On top of the pyre is an effigy to signify Holika who tricked Prahalad into the fire.). There is no tradition of holding puja (prayer), and the day is for partying and pure enjoyment. Children and youth form groups armed with dry colours, coloured solution & means to fill and spray others with coloured solution (known as pichkaris), balloons that can hold coloured water, and other creative means are also used to colour the targets. The event has now become an almost international event and is celebrated by people (Indians or not) around the world.

Yep, since no one has claimed this title yet, I shall proclaim myself the King of Jaywalking..
As the fact of the matter is, I like to take pictures while crossing roads, jaywalking or not.It often provides you with angles that are unique and unexplored.The word crossing might as well be replaced sometimes by the words ‘running across’ instead, haha…Oh yes its illegal in most 1st world countries,till u are caught of course , by either the police or by the Grim Reaper. But since I am from India,its a no biggie.. stuff happens in India willy-nilly which if happens in any other country, the whole country would shut down…
Do u like to take images while crossing the street? I had this awesome comment from a friend by the name Sue Summons in my Facebook page :: ‘Not ready for that yet. Want to live a bit longer lol’..
So here are some images I have taken around the world that are from the middle of the road..
