Celebrating in black and white

The exhibition takes the viewer through festivities unique to Anandpur Sahib  

Among the multitude of festivals in India, Hola Mohalla — a three-day event — is celebrated at the shrine of Keshgarh Sahib in the town of Anandpur Sahib in Punjab, every year, in the month of March.

Hola is the masculine form of the feminine sounding Holi and the word “Mohalla” implies an organised procession in the form of an army column.

Delhi based photographer Jagdev Singh has shot the festival in black and white and his works are on display at an exhibition titled Hola Mohalla at the India International Centre.

The exhibition takes the viewer through the festivities of the celebration that is unique to the town. The photographs reflect the faith of the festival and the zeal with which it is celebrated.
