    1. Thanks nivs!… Happy Holi to you as well. BTW, this is one festival which has large number of ‘deserters ‘!!!not everyone appreciates colours and water! Any other name I can call you with?

    1. Thank You! It sure is a unique festival.. people used to take liberty in stepping over the usual norms on occassion of holi and it was not objected to…that was long back though, things have changed. But even to this day, holi is associated with being naughty and fun. People would joke about each other and laugh together. So in a way, this festival was different. Thanks for your comments! 🙂
