This image was taken on the outskirts of Vrindavan city in Uttar Pradesh, India. It captures the vibrant and colourful Holi festival, also known as the festival of colours, which is celebrated in the month of March. People throw coloured powder and water on each other and the celebrations in some parts of India are ecstatic, almost surreal. You can read the full story behind the shot and find out more about Sahil in our interview with him here.
