The most aggressive form of Holi. The aggression is of course of women on men 
😉 This is celebrated at the Dauji temple near Mathura.The tradition goes back almost 500 years – started by the family that established the Dauji temple. Only the traditional family takes part in this event. The devotees gather in the central courtyard of the temple, and soon after that, it turns into a battleground literally. Men pour buckets full of coloured water on the women, while the women get back at the men in a rather aggressive manner by thrashing them and ripping off their clothes. Pretty interesting, isn’t it?
