Indian Students’ Association Celebrates Holi

PULLMAN – On April 31st, Reaney Park was filled with residents and students celebrating an ancient Hindu festival called Holi.

      Individuals attending the event covered themselves in neon colors and participated in a feast that signified the arrival of spring. President of the Indian Students’ Association Ruchira Tandel enjoyed celebrating the Festival of Colors at the event.

      “At the start of the event we had water balloons… we used colored powder to throw on each other so it’s all about fun.”

      The three hour event hosted by the Indian Students’ Association welcomed 150 people of all ages excited to celebrate Holi and participate in the various activities the event offered. As the semester comes to an end, the current ISA committee is preparing to leave their positions, however they hope the oncoming committee will help expand the Association’s events in the future. The Indian Students’ Association Communication Chair Vishnutej Ellur expects the event to continue to grow in the future.

      “Not sure how we’re going to plan it next year but we might incorporate some more elements, we might make a little bigger event… so that’s one thing we would possibly do.”

      Holi is celebrated every year all over the world, and will only continue to expand in Pullman.
