A man from Nandgaon shouts as he is about to be hit with a stick by a woman from Barsana during Lathmar Holi in Barsana, India. According to tradition men from Lord Krishna's village of Nandgaon are beaten by the women of Barsana, home of Lord Krishna's lover Radha. It is said that Lord Krishna's relatives used to tease Radha and her friends and were beaten by them in return. Even to this day, marriage between the two villages are not permitted.

Women walk with sticks during the Lathmar Holi festival in Nandgaon, India. The women of Nandgaon, the hometown of Hindu God Krishna, attack the men from Barsana, the legendary hometown of Radha, consort of Hindu God Krishna, with wooden sticks in response to their efforts to put color on them, reciprocating acts performed yesterday in Barsana between the women of that village with the men of Nandgaon as they observe the Lathmar Holi festival.
