Yaoshang Mei Thaba


On the full-moon day of Lamta, the last month of the Manipuri Lunar calendar, Men and women are assembled at the evening for a ritual – burning a thatched hut made of hay and bamboo – what the Manipuris also called ‘Yaoshang Mei Thaba’, which marks the beginning of the Festival of Colours – Yaoshang or Doljatra or simply – Holi.

Here are some of the photos.
