AFTERTHOUGHTS OF HOLI
THE whole country celebrated the auspicious festivel of colours and warmth . People were seen drenched in colours, and colour(?)ed water . In some places people appeared in front of the news channel cameras all smitten by thandai and bhang . Even the hard core news reporters seen reporting in a way that they could not be said to be the news reporters without the logo of their channel on the microphone .
So it is sure that more and more people are involved in this festivel . While we are happy watching people indifferent to their religion participating in the fun and contributing to the national integrety , we are also scared to watch the spirit of holi players changing every passing year . They are getting more and more aggressive while getting intimate with people who are not willing to play the colours and more bold while using the drinks giving more “high” . Even the the span of Holi is increasing day by day . Holi starts in the offices even before the exact day because most offices have the day as a holiday .
It’s is a great festivel to reduce our differences , enjoy colours , friendship and good food , and to remember the the win of goodness over badness . But at the same time we should not forget about the harms that uncautious play of this festivel may bring to our lives . The harmful ingredients , throwing of objects and roping unwilling people to the fun are not the exact spirit of Holi . Before getting drenched into the carnival of colours we should give these matters a thought .
