Deep Thought

Colors of Spring

It was just yesterday when I'd keep the winter clothing inside the bunk and replaced them with summer ones after a hard work of two hours. Its the time of the season, when the summer collides with winters and boom! summer wins! 
Not to forget, at the end of winter season, on the day after the full moon in early March is a grand celebration- festival of Holi.
Yes, the festival of colors, as it is mentioned. The gulal hidden in everyone's fists. Buckets of colored water ready at everyone's balconies and terraces. Water guns ready at children's backs and hands. Balloons filled with colored water instead of regular air. Gujjias and jaljeera pani ready to be attacked on. Grown ups are children again. Its just an excuse to give away the old clothes and step out in streets. All are feared in the morning and by afternoon arrives every one becomes engineer of how to attack people. No one can be recognized. The color, the enjoyment, the zest, the commemoration, the fete, masquerade, the triumph takes over all. 
May this Holi fills your life with colors!

Holi spares none.
Barring, the day comes with albatross around the neck:
* The regular colors available on the streets causes skin damage to many. These can also affect the ears, nose, eyes. This year, replace them with herbal or organic colors. Not only they are made up free of chemicals, but does not cause damage to any body organ which will come for 10 rs extra than regular ones.
*Try to wear oldest of your clothes and try keeping your arms and legs covered. Make sure your face and arms are well creamed and hair well oiled. Not only they prevent skin but also makes you difficult to catch!
*Do not use permanent dyes. Even if one has applied it on you, try removing it with good quality cleansing milk.
*When someone applies colors on you, keep your eyes and mouth shut!

Remember the above points and have fun this Holi! Eat loads of gujjias. And do not cause damage to anyone.
