So first things first, best Holi experience of my life till now.
Today, on day 3 of Sangla Holi, the procession featuring characters from Ramayana and people from Sangla village, went around the town, from market to market, colony to colony, and in between we'd stop at different residing places of local deities, and whenever we halted, refreshments would be served to everyone.
In refreshments, we had Chilta, a local bread made out of locally grown buckwheat; Pultu, another kind of bread that is more like Puri/bhatura, alongwith cooked veggies; plus tea for the tetotallers, and Faasur(local alcohol brewed with Apple and Apricot kernels) for the others.
And after the refreshments, everyone would once again gather around to do Kinnauri Nati, and with dry colours flying around, plus snowclad mountains in the background, it formed for one of the most surreal sights one could ever experience in an Indian festival.
And during Kinnaur Nati, a group of musicians sitting in middle would sing and play folk songs, while locals would dance around them, and at times literally pulling the us by hand and making us join them in the nati.
This was clicked when we were dancing in one of the house's courtyard in Sangla village.
