Jassi’s interest in photography goes back as long as he can remember. He shares his love of photography with a love of travels. His camera has taken him through length and breadth of India and across the globe. Along the way he has gained a deep insight to intricacies of this sophisticated art form. Jassi is never happier than when he is wandering with his camera either on his own or while leading a group of photo enthusiasts, trying to capture a spectacle in the magical light.

Overview of the Photo Tour

Get a glimpse of what’s in store

The most celebrated Holi is in the Braj region – locations connected to Lord Krishna: Barsana, Nandagaon and Vrindavan. Holi at Barsana, the birthplace of Radha, a village, 42 kms away from Vrindavan, is of particular interest. Here, men from Nandgaon, the land of Krishna come to play Holi with the girls of Barsana and hope of raising their flag over Shri Radhikaji’s temple. But, instead of colours they are greeted with sticks by the gopis. Hence, this Holi gets its name – Lathmaar Holi. Smart enough, men come fully padded as they are fully aware what kind of welcome awaits them and also the fact that they are not allowed to retaliate on that day. In this mock battle of sorts, they try their best not to be captured. The unlucky one’s however, are forcefully led away and get a good thrashing from the women. All in the spirit of Holi.


The next day, it is the turn of the men from Barsana. They reciprocate by invading Nandgaon and drench the womenfolk of Nandgaon in colours of kesudo, naturally occurring orange-red dye and palash. Today, the women of Nadagon beat the invaders from Barsana. The week long Holi celebrations also continue in the various Krishna temples on different days. The celebrations are filled with clouds of colours and of course, much fun.
