Happy Holi folks!
If there is one colour that can be called the ‘colour of holi’, it would surely be pink. Back in our old school-going days, Holi was not a holiday. It probably still is not in many schools in the south of India. Everyone knew, though, that those who celebrated the festival of colour, would not come to school on the day, and the next day, they would appear in class, looking like dyed story-book creatures with ears and necks a bright mithai pink.
It seems that pink continues to dominate!
I must admit here that I totally avoid getting any colour on myself, pink or any other. Holi has never been among my favourite festivals, but of course, it is a time when one cannot but notice nature’s way of celebrating… with vibrant pink!
