For those who do not know about Indian festivals, Holi is a festival, specially celebrated in North India. It comes when winter is tucked away and spring is coming. This is a festival of colors, food, drinking, dancing, throwing colored water and dry colors etc.

For me- This is as close to Holi that I can go, which means, writing about it in a blog.
I have no problem with people celebrating this festival whichever way they want to. But I am never ever part of it- never was, even as a child. You could easily say that I quite dislike the whole thing.

This is one day when I like to be left alone. I lock myself indoors and spend time only with myself.
Over the period of years, my friends have learnt to leave me alone on this day. No amount of persuasion and coaxing, would make me change my mind.

Despite the fact, that I am a very colorful and fun loving person, who celebrates all festivals of all religions, Holi is not my cup of tea. I do not see any logic why I should dirty myself. Why I should allow chemicals, dirty water, colors, to go in my eyes, skin and hair.

So here is wishing all of you a very Happy Holi. As always, I will celebrate it by myself, in my room, blogging, reading, etc.

  3. I've never celebrated Holi but I would love to! I also don't like to get dirty but I think on occasion it might be fun. Your dress is absolutely beautiful. And I don't think you have too many photos on your blog :)
