Bhopal, March 15: While India is swooning in festive mood this Holi, there is no dearth of innovation in the ways the people are planning to play holi. While there are few who like to follow the conventional style, with loads of colour and water, there are others who have taken Holi to a luxurious level.

At least that is what jeweller shops in Bhopal show. With Gold and Silver spray guns, the shops are dazzling even more this Holi. Reminds one of the last year Holi celebrations when a Gold pichkari worth Rs 80 lakh was on sale in New Delhi. Some of these 'pichkaris' were studded with real diamonds too.
