New Delhi, March 1 (IANS) Streets in Delhi presented a festive look on the occasion of Holi Monday as people danced away to the beats of drums, splashed colours and water on friends and family members as children threw water-filled balloons on passers by.
Elders hugged and smeared ‘abir’ and ‘gulal’ on each other’s faces across the city. Families celebrating the festival exchanged delicacies like ‘gujiya’.

Children did what they do best — played pranks by spraying coloured water with toy guns and hurled water-filled balloons on passers by from the safety of rooftops and balconies of their houses.

Youngsters were seen riding motorbikes, throwing colours in the air and chanting ‘Holi hai’ even as police patrolled neighbourhoods and even main roads to check possible violence.

At several places, police erected barricades to check drunken driving.
