A very Happy Holi to all the readers.
What a Joy to share the happy Holi tales of childhood which reminds us of colors and fun. Holi always brings out the hidden child in each one of us. I am proud to be part of a Country where this Colorful festival is celebrated to bring harmony into the relationships and Life.
I really miss the Holi celebration when we were far away from the facts and statistics and when we never thought about hair getting spoiled or skin getting rash.
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 the neighborhood peeps get together to forget the past disagreements and enjoy without any hesitation.
We, my younger Brother and I, used to gather all our props the night before- Balloons, Water guns, Gulal and water buckets and ask our Mother to wake us up early for the preparation. Here Morning came, there we were ready after our breakfast and champi done. No one used to be late that day. We used to divide ourselves into groups and stand at a distance to target other with balloons and water guns. What Fun it was!
Till we end up with our game completely drenched, Elders were 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.

Things changed with time and now we are more concerned about clothes getting spoiled, house getting dirty and water getting wasted.
Memories got refreshed as I am sharing those here. 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.
