In Photos | India Through Holi’s Technicolour Shades

From the Himalayas to the Andaman Islands, the country dons an assortment of colours throughout the year.

Dubbed as a country of all hues, India truly offers a chaos of every colour in every corner of regular life. This Holi, the colours of gulal remind us of a bunch of travel-worthy places that are taken over by a certain tint in every season. From the snow-swathed peaks in the north, to the azure seas of the islands and the verdant hills of the Northeast, a different shade welcomes travellers through the year. And there are those nooks that blossom forth as a surprise, appearing only once every few years.

Through a palette of six (plus one) colours, we take you on a photographic journey through India.
