“Tolerance and celebration of individual differences is the fire that fuels lasting love.”
Holi the word brings so many childhood memories in my mind...:) in books we used to have lessons why Holi is celebrated....and always in Hindu mythology..its always the win of good over the evil...and I remember how we had to mug-up all about Prahalad & Holika...as there were fill in the blanks to fill or some out of the blue moon question ...or else then write an essay :) ...boy I used to love writing essay as its again an imaginary ground thats given to you to roam around...:)
“Poetry is the history of the human heart, and it continues to record the history of human emotion, whether it's celebration or grief or whatever it may be.” ~ William Collins
Holi also reminds me of the flower 'Tesu'...it seems in olden days and I believe even now in deep northen parts of the villages do use the flower to make color and for dye purposes...but I always loved this flower for its brightness...an orangish-red!!!
“A Picture of many colors proclaims images of many Thoughts.”
My childhood holi friends were Deepu (Jitender), Meenu(Meenakshi) and Preeti was tiny little baby...but I still miss them...it was all about getting ready to play holi...and we used to have sweets and then we used to play holi..I remember Deepu's dad used to be serious and from behind from the window pane he used to throw the colored water balloons....and we all used to scream as we used to get cold...!!!
“Colors, like features, follow the changes of the emotions.” ~ Pablo Picasso
Today...I want to thank them...no matter which part of the world they are...but am sure they will remember those days...!!! Deepu was my chidhood friend since I Was a kid and later he joined my school and he was my classmate till we went for our graduation...:)
I know he is serving the country by being in Air Force...am proud of him where ever he is he is doing good!!!
This holi is dedicated to Deepu :) and his family.
“If I need a cause for celebration
Or a comfort I can use to ease my mind
I rely on my imagination
And I dream of an imaginary time.”
Bein in NDA (National Defense Academy), I had all the flavours of the culture and tradition and I think thats what makes all of us one...a human!!!
I feel proud when I say here to my friends...yeah ita a festival of colors ....;) as they all know about the lights (Diwali)....we know how to celebrate and enjoy ..!!!
This picture was sent to me by my blog buddy bombayite...and for the first time I am using something like this by sending him just a note ...lol Thnx buddy!!!!
“Time draweth wrinkles in a fair face, but addeth fresh colors to a fast friend, which neither heat, nor cold, nor misery, nor place, nor destiny, can alter or diminish”
I actually have a e-colaborate meeting going on...and I realized I dont have to be there...usually I do attend still just that you never know when that important point that you could miss...but today...this color of festival took away my heart from there to jott here...:)...all I could say in my heart was 'Bura na maano Holi hai' (Dont just feel bad its Holi here )
Happy Holi to all...:)
