Colour it up! 

The month of March usually means two things (for me at least)-

One, all the flowers are in bloom -I just came home after ten days and found the entire garden was in bloom and looking oh!so pretty!

Via Not So Routine

Two, Holi usually happens in March (it’s today!) – the festival when you get to play with water balloons, coloured powder , dirt, eggs,beer, and all sorts of  icky things without the fear of getting in trouble. Yes, today is the day you can smash an egg on someones head and all they will do in return is smile back atcha or throw a couple of water balloons in your direction! It sounds pretty crazy but it is one of the madder festivals we have and so much FUN!

So, HAPPY HOLI everyone- be safe and eggless (and eat only a few bhang pakodas-they are dangerous!)!

Side note: Actually March also usually meant exam time for most of us and holi would almost always happen during exam time which meant we could watch from afar but not partake in the festivities ! Pure torture! Thank God we don’t have to deal with that anymore!

 

**Happy Holi !**
