今日小常識

The photo shows men in the Northern Indian village of Barsana celebrating the Hindu festival of Lath mar Holi. The tradition involves men singing provocative songs to gain the attention of women, who then beat them with bamboo sticks called "lathis". Holi, also known as the Festival of Colours, marks the beginning of spring and is celebrated all over India.

照片上是印度北部邦的巴薩納村鎮的男人正在慶祝印度教節日「胡裏節」(又名「灑紅節」)。這一節日在當地的傳統是由男子向女子歌唱挑撥言情的歌曲,作為回應,女子會用名叫「拉西斯」的竹棒追打他們。「胡裏節」也有「潑灑顏色節」的別號,是慶祝春季開始的印度舉國節日。
