Kolkata soaks into Holi celebrations amid fears of coronavirus

Amid fears of rising cases of coronavirus, Kolkata on Sunday (March 28, 2021) celebrates the festival of colour-'Holi'. West Bengal celebrates Holi as 'Dol Jatra'. Here people observe this day by placing the idols of Krishna and Radha on a Palki (Palinquin) and they carry them around and play with Abir (Gulal). Several foreigners were seen smearing gulal (colours) along with the locals on Sudder Street.Images by Avishek Mitra/IBNS
