Spring is the quintessential season for the long list of summer events specific to India. During this time, entire buildings and streets are often painted with graffiti juxtaposed in a rare kaleidoscope. A true sight to behold!

There are criticisms linked to burning wood and animal waste in these ritualistic processions.
