This sounds like it would be great to sketch! All that color and impishness going on! Thank you for posting this---I found it fascinating!!
 
It used to be my favourite festival - most children adore playing with colour and getting wet and teasing others! As an adult I detest the wetness and yukkiness of it as I have become rather boring! However - the "best" part of the festival is drinking bhang - a really spiked drink. ;D
 
Bhang lassi is considered holy (that is why people are as cheerful and relaxed there!)
