Today was “Holi”, the Indian festival of colours… I had absolutely no expectations of the day coz I had never ever played holi but all that changed in the evening. First Anant appears from nowhere all covered in gulal(coloured powder) and threatened to cover us in colour right at our places if we did not come out and play… Guess what we went out and had a blast…
I returned home early to take a bath and had a few things I had to get done but I got this call from Arpit who ocassionally drops in, he said he wanted some software off the net immediately… I msg him back saying that I am covered with colors and will take a bath and he can then come and take it. When he arrived I had just finished my bath a few min ago and had put on clean clothes… He was covered in gulal and said that he just needed my help to get another friend out of his house to play. I knew its going to be colourful so switched back to my old clothes and joined him, Shabari and Appu to Hemanth’s place.
We reach Hemanth’s place and I give him a call to get him out but he does not pick it up… I walk up to his door and hear his voice… A bell and few sec later he comes out and is all game to play… We spend a few mins throwing gulal at each other… We then try to get Sangeeth involved and she refuses to budge, she says she is at home and that she knows we will put color on her. We manage to convince her that we just want to eat ice cream together and tell her to come to Appu’s place.
The next phase of the plan was Swetha… We go to her house after confirming she is home. We are told that she was on the terrace and then just pounce on her… It took us like 10 secs to get her coloured… Shabari then calls Sindhu(her sister) over in the pretext that I hv bought my new car… Arpit was busy getting a bucket of water coloured… This was special colour that lasts longer(2-3 days)… the water was blood red when he was done with it and he poured half of it onto Shabari, watching which Swetha was laughing away to glory when Arpit dumped the rest on her.
We then welcomed Sindhu with more gulal and she was really not expecting us to be playing holi, her favourite shirt looked a little different today :P. We then headed to Appu’s place where Sangeeth and Kishore were waiting for us… One look at us and Sangeeth sprinted inside… Arpit managed to throw some color at her and she really got upset :(. She said she had some sort of allergic reaction to gulal(we told her it was organic but she would not listen)
Kittu joined in the fun as we coloured ourselves with all colours we could get our hands onto… not to mention a lot of eggs and more permanent colors in water. It was late into the night when we got done and decided to call it a day…
Today was another first for me and I so loved doing it. Special thanks to Anant and Arpit they made this day memorable :)
