Indian women ‘beat’ men with sticks during Holi

STORY: People gathered in huge crowds to see 'Lath Maar Holi' (stick-beating Holi) where women were seen chasing away the menfolk by beating them with sticks.

Mathura is believed to be the birthplace of Lord Krishna, with cultural and religious programs, where devotees smeared each other with colors.

Though Holi is a single-day festival elsewhere in India, it is almost a 10-day affair in Mathura.
