Holi Hai: 5th Annual Festival of Colors

Holi 2012, the ancient Indian Festival of Colors, featured a new event — the Rain Dance Party — meant to bring rain to the city after last year's drought. Holi, where revelers throw brightly=colored powder at each other, is celebrated each spring as a metaphor for the triumph of good over evil. PHOTOS BY ALLISON McPHAIL
