wishing everyone a happy and safe holi this time. as much as i love colors, i also like the festival of holi with everyone celebrating and sharing the warmth, joy, love and happiness.
holi is one festival in which people celebrate together without bringing the caste, color or status in mind.

note: while playing holi, its better to avoid hard colors and play with soft colors like gulal. but some people deliberately use strong hard color which is difficult to clean later on and spoil the skin. one common trick which people use to minimize the effect of hard color is to rub mustard oil in their skin before going out to play holi. the thin layer of oil on the skin make sure that the hard color goes off from the skin easily without much rubbing. If possible then use eco friendly colors which are easily available in the market.
