New Delhi: Delhi Monday celebrated Holi with the usual enthusiasm, men and women drenching one another with colour.

Young revellers sprayed water guns and flung balloons filled with water at each other -- and strangers. 

People thronged Krishna temples across the city.

"I don`t play Holi much but I do go to temple and prepare special food for family," said Nishtha Gupta, 32, of Mayur Vihar in east Delhi.

Families gave away sweets to neighbours. The most sought after delicacy was `gujiya`. 

Police were on the streets in strength to check drunken driving and unruly conduct by Holi revellers.
