Every year, Hindus across the world greet the arrival of spring with the festival of Holi. It's a riotous display of color and mischief, as celebrants shower each other with bright powders (non-toxic, of course). It's also an opportunity to enjoy the company of family, friends, and neighbors.

Santa Clara's observance of Holi on March 10 was led by Intandesh, one of the clubs in SCU's Multicultural Center. Intandesh works to promote South Asian cultural awareness amongst the SCU community.

Check out pictures of the event taken by photographer Chuck Barry below.
