Holi Tales

March 20, 2016

Ah! I love to share this.

I really miss the Holi celebration when we were far away from the facts and statistics and when we don’t think about hair getting spoiled or skin getting rashed.

Holi mostly used to clash with our exams but even then we managed to celebrate it fully with Family and Friends. Thanks to my Mom who never stopped us from having fun despite exam stress.

Holi was about celebrating together when all neighborhood people get together to forget the past disagreements and enjoy without any hesitation.
We, my younger Brother and I, used to gather all our virtual weapons the night before- Balloons, Water guns, Gulal and water buckets and ask our Mother to wake us up early for the preparation.

Here Morning come, there we were ready after our breakfast and champi done. No one used to be late that day. We stepped up on the road to get divided into groups. We stand at a distance and target each other’s group with balloons and water guns. What Fun it was!

Till we end up with our game and completely drenched, Elders are out and next fun begins- To visit each and every Home and Color them in the vibes of festival. We got ready with washed hands to join them and enjoy delectable sweets others used to offer. We never grabbed one but fill our mouth and fists.

That was not enough for us and our next plan was to run in open playground with dry colors and run behind each other. After we got totally exhausted, we used to laid down in the park narrating the stories about imaginary shapes of clouds.

The weather on Holi in India is too pleasant to get dirty without the fear of catching cold. It adds to the fun for Kids.

happy holi

Hey Friends! You all have been missed πŸ™‚ Wish you all a Happy Holi.

Things changed with time and now we are more concerned about clothes getting spoiled, house getting dirty and water getting wasted.

I’m pledging to #KhulKeKheloHoli this year by sharing my Holi memories at BlogAdda in association with Parachute Advansed.

Memories got refreshed as I am sharing those with all. I love this way of expressing my thoughts in words. Friends are far away now but this year I am planning to color my Husband who play hide and seek on this day every year. I will prepare some Sweets at home and will call all near and dear ones to wish Happy Holi.

  • Hey Upasna,

    Thanks for sharing. I would like to tell a little funny incident about my first holi at the age of 10 πŸ™‚

    I was little afraid to go out because people used to put very hard color on face. Normally you would see your face after 10-15 days. I had a crush in my school. πŸ™‚

    So that was 1998 if I am sure. I went out for holi because everyone wanted me to go out instead of sitting at home. I played well. When I came back my mom asked to see my face in mirror and wash it. The moment I saw my face, I broke the mirror.

    Everyone was thinking that I am not liking the color on face but the main concern was school next day and someone would not like my face.

    Haha

    • Ha ha ha…you must be feeling embarrassing the next day. I too started disliking the after-effects of Holi colors the day I got aware about my skin and omg..pimples.
