“When I was young, there were no readymade colours and water pistols for Holi. I had to collect them from leaves of different plants. And I built a pipe to shoot water out of bamboo.
“But now I am old and only come here to take pictures for my grandchildren. They need to know about the tradition of their ancestors. And they need to see that despite the destruction, despite the buildings barely supported by a pole which could fall down any second, despite the fear, we are celebrating.”
