    Muslims celebrating Eid, Hindus at Sufi Dargah, Muslim children as Radha and Krishna.

    Some may have heard of "Lattha Holi", when women beat the men with bamboo poles, but before that, there is a "Laddoo holi" in Vraja, Krishna's land (Laddoo: Sweet balls made of wheat or gram flour). Women throw these laddoos from parapets of temples or homes and men down below try to catch them. :)

    Of course, there is a stone-throwing holi also.
