Celebrate Holi

Holi is only be enjoyable if you play with friends and relatives using different colors. Holi is celebrated with color powder and colored water filled in balloon throwing on someone else among friends which are ready to play. If you don't prepared for play, it may cause any trouble during play you may damage your precious item due to water. Water may entered on eyes or ear, mouth parts anywhere. You may get hurt while running from escaping water or colour filled 'Lola- balloon with colored water'. In the same way playing holi with anyone that is not ready or agreed to play holi may cause a trouble. You may get any type of blame if something unpleased happen to anyone if they are not agreed to play holi which is illegal as well.

Happy Holi

I like to say Happy Holi to everyone. Celebrate this festival with joys being little bit conscious about the precaution that should be followed during playing with color. Make the festival to join the relationship among people, decreases the distance instead of creating violence and situation of quarreling and blaming one another for wrong doing. I would like to suggest to play holi with that one who ageed to play with full of discipline. The culture is ours and we need to preserve it by celebrating in a good manner. These festivals is our identity. If we spoil festivals that is equivalent of spoiling oneself.
Enjoy Holi! Happy Holi to all!
