Holi Time!!

Holi is around the corner and the countdown has been set, Only 9 
days to go. The markets of Delhi have started buzzing with sweets, colors, water-guns(Pichkaris) and what not. Holi is a festival of color and the entire city seems to be more colorful as the days are passing.

When I was a kid, I still remember that on the day of Holi how I used to play with colors throwing at each other, applying on the cheeks of elders, chase down my friends and cousins with water-guns all day and many times ran away from them. Later when we all got toll of our bodies and more specifically ran out of water, that's when we decided to call off a day and delve into the delicacies such as Pakoras(fritters), Gunjiyas, Thandai, etc. prepared by my mother and aunts. Later, the real task was to get rid of the color from ourselves and try to look as much presentable as possible on the next day and that is the only con of playing Holi.
Now as we have grown, playing holi appears to be troublesome because having Holi is an equivalent to a National Holiday but the next day at college is definitely not a holiday and going there with frizzy oddly colored hairs is a big invitation to being embarrassed. So, the older and smarter me doesn't wish to play with colors anymore. All I want to do is sit at home, send pleasantries to my near and dear ones, watch TV, eat the holi special foods by ordering from some famous places and that's was my agenda to celebrate holi.
But thanks to my friend who is a pro at hair-care remedies told me that oiling the hairs with coconut oil the day before the festival helps in hair strengthening and protecting them from the colors and also avoiding the post-holi hair woes. In-fact, when I took her advice and did the oiling with my hairs, the results left me awestruck because not only I played Holi wholeheartedly but my hairs were the same shining and straight as they were before.
When I watch this video,I have got the vibe that Holi should be played with full heart and zeal or in literal Hindi words it should be played 'KhulKe'. After all, it is a festival of colors and that is synonymous with being happy and spreading happiness.
I’m pledging to #KhulKeKheloHoli this year by sharing my Holi memories at BlogAdda in association with Parachute Advansed.
