In photos: Students celebrate Holi festival with burst of colour

Dundee University students celebrated Holi, the festival of colours and love, on Saturday.

The vibrant festivities, which originate in India and Nepal as a Hindu celebration, signify the victory of good over evil, the end of winter and the arrival of spring.

It also offers a chance to meet others, forget and forgive, and repair broken relationships.

Holi can also be celebrated as a thanksgiving for a good harvest. Students took part in the festival at Belmont Green, throwing coloured powder at each other.
