    Indian students smear colored powder over themselves during a Holi event in Kolkata on February 26, 2018.

    Streets all over India turned into playgrounds on Thursday as revelers threw colored powder and water at each other in celebration of Holi, also known as the Hindu festival of color.

    Holi is probably the least religious of all Hindu festivals, but at the same time it's definitely the most colorful.

    The annual holiday marks the beginning of spring and the triumph of good over evil.
