This wonderful photograph is of a festival in India taken by Sanjay Patil. The abandon and almost child-like glee that the people are demonstrating while splashing vividly coloured chalk everywhere is so refreshing to see. I think our culture could well benefit from a similar festival or activity that encourages people to let go and just have a rowdy good time.

It has been brought to my attention that there is in fact a very similar looking event in North America. The group responsible is called The color Run and they travel around arranging charity runs of 5K for charity. Their statement and obviously part of the fun is that paint is splashed over the runners throughout the run!
