Happy Holi

16, Mar, 2014, by Seema Bhatnagar

Holi is not just a festival of colors but a way to participate with Mother nature to celebrate the vibrancy and colors of spring. It has a message that playfulness is an important aspect of life and one must be playful to experience the real fun of life. It is a time to experience playfulness and zest and to revive your relationships and bonds which are forgotten in the daily rush of life. It is an occasion to remind us that a deep devotion and faith in good pursuits always brings success in the end, no matter how hard the opposing forces are.

Legends says, this festival was started by Lord Krishna while playing with his friends at Vrindaban. Today also, it is played in real sense at Vrindaban, Mathura and Barsana areas of UP or Northern India.

Holi Wishes

May this festival of colors fills your life with spectrum of colors, colors of love, joy, friendship and deeply satisfying relationships. May it brings you the new zest to enjoy life to fullest and may it takes you a step closer to the best of your potential.

Enjoy holi with your friends and family and just love the way each and every one is. Play a colorful and safe Holi.

Dos and Don'ts

Here are some dos and don'ts for Holi. Taking care of these will surely make your Holi a real Happy and safe Holi.
  1. Be sensitive to others and prefer homemade natural colors, e.g turmeric powder for yellow color with scent., roli a red colored powder, which is used for putting tilak in all poojas, henna powder for green color, dried and powdered Marigold petals, dried and powdered Rose petals for pink color.

  2. Do not force others to play holi. You may request but it is unfair and highly insensitive to forcefully play holi.

  3. Do not throw water filled balloons as it might hurt somebody's eye or any sensitive area of body.

  4. Use only dry colors or gulal than harmful and toxic colors available in market.

  5. Play holi with people who are of your age. Do not use it as an occasion to take advantage and to harass others in any way, I especially mean here girls and women.

  6. Do not drink and drive on roads. Let it be an occasion of celebration and not to hear of any mishaps.

  7. Do not get involved in any brawl; just be calm and peaceful with others.

  8. Must visit or contact your family if staying away from them. It is an occasion to feel united and loved.

  9. Oil your face, body and hair before playing holi colors. This would help in quick removal of colors afterwards as colors will not penetrate in skin.

  10. Enjoy Gujiya and Kanjee at home with friends and family to bring more sweetness to Holi.

Just enjoy, play and be cheerful. Share your happiness and abundance with others to feel happier and cheerful. Check out this devotional song in Hindi which is about praising Lord Krishna for his greatness and simplicity. Lyrics and music, both are captivating and will really uplift your spirits. http://youtu.be/z8hHNXn8bOA
