Paint the streets Red

As nature bursts into a thousand beautiful hues with the coming of spring, the hills of Nepal take on a shade of Red as the Nepalese celebrate their New Year in a week of festivities. During the Sindhoor Jatra they carry their deities around in decorated palanquins and smear red vermilion powder on each other. With much playing of drums and dancing and smearing of vermillion energy of these processions are a sight to behold.
