AHMEDABAD, INDIA – MARCH 7, 2017: An Indian worker dries out eco-friendly herbal coloured powder ahead of the upcoming Hindu festival of Holi at a factory on the outskirts of Ahmedabad. Eco-friendly herbal colours made at the German Chemicals plant near Ahmedabad are prepared using starch and edible colouring. The tradition of throwing these natural herbal powders, aside from being fun, is a natural way to prevent sickness in the early spring months.
