Rang Barse!
The beats of 'Rang Barse', rang through the air as Holi coloured the city of Mumbai! On Sunday evening groups of people gathered in temple compounds, housing societies and street corners to light the Holika bonfire. On Monday, squeals of little children erupted in the air early in the morning and continued throughout the day.

This year the civic authorities had not imposed a water cut anywhere in the city. Yet Mumbaikars have developed a conscientious view against water wastage. Of course some revellers enjoyed water guns, baloon throwing and bucket dunking but the once omnipresent rain dance with lavish artificial showers is a thing of the past. The growing demand for safe eco-friendly colour has prompted manufacturers to affix labels on their packs. Housing societies purchased jalebis, kheer, gujiya and thandai from the regular counter of the local halwai but were directed to a discreet back door to pick up their consignment of bhaang. ADC photographers – Shyam Iyer, Trupti Arekar, Santosh Gupta and Azad Shrivastav frame the most happening moments of Holi celebrations from around the city.
