holi n no holiday!!!!!

Its the festival of coulours again ....... the fun filled holi !!!!!!

Not that i found the festival really nice .... have been various phases when I've felt different things about the festival.... but today the sight of a huge group of little children enjoying themselves the the maximum made me yearn to join then instead of stepping into the office to do some mnotonous coding!!!!! ...... made me remember the times when I as a kid used to enjoy the festival.....

I was introduced to the festival as a very small child ...... the excitement starting from the previous evening....we had holika dehen n a few cultural events in the colony .... I remember one particular year when Mum didn't allow me to drape myself in one of her saris because i had not completed what I had promised to study ( btw holi cumes always at the time when we had exams :( ) ....... remember how I felt as if the whole world had come crumbling down when all my friends were out there n I was enduring punishment!!!!

The next day was rather more fun .... get up early without having to be nagged ...... mix up water n colours n all geared for a fun filled day.... I remember how bhaiyas used to break batteries to remove lead from them n play...... cheeeee!!!!!! ...... when we were really small , we used to be scared of it ...... but over the years we too joined them in their creative efforts..... after loadsa playing we used to return home fully drenched, totally unrecogonisable n exhausted like hell !!!!!! .....

A nice refreshing bath n sleep away to glory ......

Evening was a more sophisticated play of the game with elders ..... and gulal..... and lotsa delicacies...... dahi vade , gujiya....... ymmmmmmmmm........ I remember how my neighbour aunty used to save some specially for me for my love of it ......

those were the days when we used to live as one big whole family!!!!!

Now all of us are in different parts of the world .... walking our different paths .... but I guess this day all of us would dfinitely be remembering the kinda fun we used to have with nostaslgia.......

Then there was a phase wen I used to find the festival really dirty and hence refrain from playing .......

Then a time when I used to feel I am too big for the game but none the less I used to join my sister n her group of friends and have an awesome time with them .... it feels really good when u r pampered for being the biggest in the group !!!!!

And now away from home , away from friends ...... I really dunno if the festival still bears any significance ..... but seeing the small kids did kindle a desire in me ......

But ....... big ppl are supposed to behave professional... so all I got to enjoy today was being reprimanded for behaving kiddish!!!!!
