Participating in the Huranga festival, women can rip off men’s clothes as well as hit those who teased them all year round.
At the end of March, the Huranga festival is held regularly after the Holi festival. It happens at the Dauji Temple in Baldeo, which is 30-km away from Mathura city of Southern India. During the festival, women rush to tear all men’s shirts and beat them for revenge of being teased all year round.
After many hours of “fighting”, the entire temple will be flooded in saffron solution. The temple will also provide clean water for people to bathe. At the end of the day, everybody will wade across the knee-high stream to leave.
