Debalina Ghosh, 23, a Georgia Southern graduate student from India, coaches Peyton Chapman, six,  from Statesboro, Georgia, to dance along to the music playing at Holi as other students also dance on the stage on March 23.

Ghosh enjoys Holi because of the vibrant-colored flour thrown there as well as the community. “It’s like bringing all of [your] friends and family together…you’re all the same so that discrimination [of skin color] is not there,” Ghosh said. 


Sharmita Saha Porshia, 20, a sophomore at GS from Bangladesh (L) dances at Georgia Southern University Holi festival on March 23 alongside Debalina Ghosh (R), 23, a second-year graduate student. Porshia and Ghosh are performing a traditional Benghali folk dance at the festival.
