Holi 2017: How JNU Celebrated The Festival

NEW DELHI:  Jhelum (Or Ganga) lawn is the place to go on Holi Festival day in Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU). The University in Delhi is the best place to be even one day before the Holi. That too, to watch the Chatt Sammelan which is being organized in the campus every year one day before Holi. Holi in JNU is normal as the celebration in every other place, but with bit more, music, colour and enthusiasm.

JNU research student and photographer Abdul Basit sent us these images.

Everyone comes to Jhelum Lawn to celebrate the festival in the campus which is situated opposite to the famous Ganga dhabha.
