Festival of Colors !!!

           553rd BLOG -->>

      The colorfulness and brightness of Holi can be seen almost in every part of India right now. People are enjoying the festival by breaking all the social barriers they had throughout the year. The children who were being stopped by parents throughout the year for not playing for more than an hour would be playing for the whole day- and that too with colors and water. The girls those who stayed in house at the time of social gatherings will get an opportunity to play with their friends. The working class generation who works at this bloody time and get screwed by their bosses would be screwing their friends by throwing them into the tanks of water. Holi is a festival when discrimination is kept aside. Today, a General Manager would be playing with his managers, the owners would be playing with their servants, the teachers would be playing with their students and rich would be playing with poor. From my side, a very Happy Holi to all of you. Enjoy the festival as much as you can because there's a long time from here when we would be celebrating our Festive season, so cherish the moment as much as you can. 

             It is always fun to wake up early in the morning after sleeping late because of the plans and strategies we make throughout the night about how to entangle our friends and make them dip into water of colors. Then, after waking up, perform pooja and wish all the family members and servants of the house. Then, put a teeka of colors on all the elders' forehead whom we meet. And once we are out of the house, do almost everything which we don't get to do. Throw as much colors as possible on people whom you always wanted to play Holi with. Throw as much water on people as possible so that they remember the next day about you when they would be coughing badly. :-) And then, this goes throughout the day, and in the evening, you are back to house. Then, the cleaning and refreshing job begins. After that, visiting to each other's house and eating the delicious "gujiyas" made by all the aunties is carried out throughout the evening. And with this, the festival of Holi ends. 

             Life is serious without colors. Bring some fun by adding colors in your life. Carrying just a single shade of skin color makes you look boring. So, try to make people rub as many colors on your face as possible. Play with almost everyone. But try to maintain a respectable distance with opposite gender. Try to keep vulgarity away from this festival of fun and colors. Try not to humiliate someone by pushing him into the gutter or some other muddy land. Festival is meant to be celebrated in good sense rather than revenging from a person whom you always hated in your life. Festival is meant to bring enemies closer rather than revenging from them for whatever they have done to you in all these days or months or years. Try to say Sorry to the people whom you always loved but because of some misunderstandings, you are away. I would be trying to do so. I know it's hard to talk to someone after a long conversation gap but then, this is "Challenge", right? So, play Holi with pure mind and soul rather than some revenging or challenging attitude. My best wishes to all of you reading this.
