On Saturday, March 26, Harvard Dharma and the Harvard India Student Group hosted a Holi celebration, the Hindu color fight celebration meant to welcome the coming of spring. Over 200 people attended the event, which began with a lunch in Quincy House and a tournament of kabbadi, a traditional Indian game that involves running and tackling. Guests were split into teams (freshmen, sophomores, seniors, juniors, and graduate students), and eventually the freshman team was crowned as the winners. Then, students transitioned over to the MAC Quad, where packets of colored powder were placed in the center of the field. Guests formed a ring around the powder, and after a countdown, everyone stormed the field and played Holi by covering those around them in the colors.
