HAPPY HOLI

The festival of colour…

The Holi festival, or the festival of colour is a festival with religions significance (as described below) but its also a great day of celebration and fun. Locals come out and throw coloured flour over each other and dance and party. I was not in India for the festival this year but last year I was. If you are there at that time wear only clothes you are prepared to have ruined because Indian’s love to douse westerners with the coloured flour.

Villagers from distant parts of India converge on places like Goa and this may be the only time of the year they drink alcohol, they go a little wild and party through the night. I have witnessed three drunken young men on a scooter, covered head to toe in colour, drunk as skunks, falling almost in slow motion over onto the ground. Lying on their backs next to their broken scooter in busy traffic and laughing hysterically; a joy to see. Happy Holi my Hindu friends.

“Historically it was an agricultural festival to celebrate the arrival of spring. With time, however, it has changed. There is now elaborate mythology associated with Holi. Despite this, Holi is widely regarded as a festival when people can throw away traditional social norms and indulge in merrymaking. There are punjas (prayers) held in several parts of the country. However, generally speaking, it’s more about sensual pleasure than any gods or goddesses.”

Thank you Steve. For me this has almost been out of my hands, something natural and beautiful has grown within me in the last few years that I knew I could not ignore. My choice is to live life to the fullest; we are only around for a short time; why spend your lifetime in some 9 to 5 job you hate, day after day, when you could be embracing the world. Thank you for your lovely comments. I will take your advice.
I will see you and Frankie on the road…
