Bright Colors, Spicy Bhajiyas, Punjabi Dhol and Thandai with bhang (which unfortunately i was tricked into!), so my last Holi in IIT was started in style. Among all the festivals and holidays this is the one which has some invasive qualities i have always been aroused of! This is the only festival…ohh yea apart from THE Valentines Day that we all GUYS celebrate together and with utmost passion. Celebration this year was though no different than the earlier versions but the feeling that this is it..no matter where i go what i do, i won’t be playing in this manner ever again, really add on to the excitement. People roaming around in torn clothes, rags and undies. Doors were banged hard, some were forced open and the people were dragged outside and stripped half naked and then hysterical mass of color all around.

When I was a child I used to make water balloons to throw them at the people passing by from our ceiling; balloons with some messages written over it. I attached notes and message – detailing every wish, and fantasy that i had at that age, with the notion that if the balloon hits someone then God definitely would grant me that wish.

water-balloon4 Everything was fun but more to it..there was Hope, some tiny little infinitesimal hope that my balloon would not gonna go waste. Many balloons got hit and many got wasted; something stopping me to recollect what all wishes i wrote on those balloons but i guess that this something is again nothing but Hope.
So I hope that all those balloons which got hit on target would have something i really wanted then.

I’ll gonna miss the insti holi hope that holi brings colors in my life and makes it beautiful and great..

PS: A Very Happy Holi to all of you!!
