Gopis (Shepherdesses) of Nandgaon Beat the Gops (Shepherds) of Barsana with Long Sticks (Laths) During Lathmar Holi Celebrations
Indian villagers smear themselves with colors during the Lathmar Holi festival on March 7, 2017 in Nandgaon near Mathura, India. The women of Nandgaon, the hometown of Hindu God Krishna, attack the men from Barsana, the legendary hometown of Radha, consort of Hindu God Krishna, with wooden sticks in response to their efforts to put color on them, reciprocating acts performed the day before in Barsana between the women of that village with the men of Nandgaon as they observed the Lathmar Holi festival.
