“Holi kab hain? Kab Hain Holi?” The famous Dialogue of Gabbar Singh from Sholay still echoes loud. The actual answer to that is “Tomorrow” …”Kal Hain Sardar” :D In school I remember just a day before holi after the school ended we didn’t have colors with us obviously but we used to greet each other mockingly saying “Arre yaar Happy “Holi”day. (Pronounce it that way :P) Holi used to be so much fun those days but sadly it ain’t anymore :(
Because of this!
The Excuse? “Its Holi yaar” …
”Yes it is but this plastic …Is this Holi?”
“Arre ‘Uncle’ (Yeah that’s what they call me these days) “Ek hee toh din milta hain, Bas kya” …
Yeah that’s such a lame excuse kiddo.
“Who will clean this up?”
“Arre ‘Uncle’ woh kachre waala aayegaa naa kal” ….
“Yes he will but will this decompose or degrade? Why do they tell us to use paper bags instead of plastic bags these days...Do you have any idea?
“Arre Yaar Sorry bol de …Sorry ‘Uncle’ “…..
Yeah right that’s what you got you noobs and 5 minutes later they continue to hit each other with those water filled plastic bags….
Well I did make the whole above thingy up …Well to be frank I would never have the guts to tell them all of that but I am 99.9 % sure that even if I would, the above scenario would turn out to be the same.
Holi is a festival of Colors, water and having truck loads of fun. But should it be an excuse for some people to use Tar,Paints and different kind of Chemicals which could potentially damage one’s skin?? Should it be an excuse for some people to use water Balloons which could potentially (if hit in the eye) could lead to permanent blindness? Should it be an excuse for some people to use sewage polluted water which could lead to more diseases and spread “Yuckiness” all around in the name of having “FUN”? Should it be an excuse for some to use plastics which is so damaging for the environment and leads to filthiness and pollution? And I should also say this “Should it be an excuse for some perverts to eve-tease other women?” Having “FUN” has its limits people ……Have a safe and a very Colorful Holi everyone....
Have Fun like this :)
