Holi Celebration Shines Bright

What better way to celebrate Holi and the end of a semester than with your friends?

Holi, also known as “The Festival of Colors,” is an ancient Indian celebration marking the end of winter and the triumph of good over evil.

Northeast Ohio Medical University’s student chapter of the American Association of Physicians of Indian Origin served up samosas (a stuffed Indian pastry) and ras malai (an Indian dessert) before participants doused each other in water and colored powders in The Village courtyard.
