A CHAOS OF COLORS  Sure, there's still a chill in the air in Michigan, but spring can't be far away when it's time for the Law School's annual celebration of Holi, the Hindu festival of colors. This year students observed the holiday—held the day after the first full moon in March—at Phid House. Holi marks the arrival of spring and also celebrates the triumph of good over evil. The object of the celebration is simple: Coat your friends and anyone else in the neighborhood with as much colorful powder as possible. (Mission accomplished, Michigan Law.) The event was held by the South Asian Law Students Association, which not only procured every imaginable color in powder form, but also provided lunch from A Taste of India.
