On the eve of the springtime Holi Festival, a priest at the Radha Krishna Temple in Kolkata throws color to devotees in a blessing believed to protect them against disease throughout the year, says Your Shot contributor Sandipa Malakar, who had long desired a chance to depict the festival in her own way.
"I went to the temple to experience the essence of the festival, which started with prayer followed by the throwing of colored water on the devotees. I took this shot as the priest threw white colored powder after showering devotees with red."

Tens of thousands of performers take part in the Arirang Mass Games held each year in Pyongyang. Each pixel in the backdrop is a schoolchild holding a book of coloured pages, turned on command to display patriotic images telling the history of the nation. Thousands of dancers form the foreground, all moving in perfectly choreographed uniformity.
