For anyone walking past the BU Beach Saturday afternoon, the sight of students dancing to the blasting music while splattered in paint seemed a little strange. However, the meaning of the event was much more than what met the eye, and demonstrated the positive things that BU students are participating in

On Saturday, April 14 the Boston University Hindu Students Council (BUHSC) hosted the Holi 2012 event. The event is similar to the one held by Hindus in India, which is a religious festival of colors where people play with colored paint. Students, both Indian and non-Indian, came out to the BU beach to participate.
