Enough is enough, everyone has contributed to making Holi a serious affair – ” I don’t like colours”, “Come on! we have grown up!”, “I have office work to do, I can’t play”, “We don’t know How to celebrate ” blah blah blah…
Mind it, till 80’s men & women of all age groups gather and celebrate Holi, so it’s not ‘only children’ festival. If you agree with me then you have to do a “Prayaschitt or Compensate for few or many Holi-less years” which is making this Holi a Holi, which we used to celebrate earlier.

No ‘Save Water’ slogan please this time on our beloved Festival. We are fed up of such campaigns by those who want to destroy our traditional festivals.
So the slogan is to save water the whole year but please give life to this festival of joy and colors.
I am full Holi enthusiast and writing this article to awaken naughty child within you, which should act like “Midas Touch” or “Paras Patthar” – whoever you will touch on this festival…. your joy will act as a catalyst for others as a reason to celebrate the Festival of Colours.
Invite all of your friends, relatives, and neighbors and do visit their house. Enjoy with organic scented colours, offer homemade sweets, Thandai & Lassi and encourage the younger generation to get Pichkari well in time, balloons and much more stuff.
Wear white Kurta Pajama or Festival of colour specific T-shirts to give it a josh.
So act fast & either go to the market or buy from e-commerce platforms these accessories & colors and gift Pichkari to young members of your family.
