Happy Holi!

I am doing a quick post to wish all you guys a very Happy Holi!
Holi is the Indian festival of colours. It is also called dol ('d' pronounced as 'th' of the) or Basanta Utsab in Calcutta (where I live).It was a fun day and the prep started with filling up water balloons with coloured water last night. We were bursting into songs from time to time. WE sounded like howling cats and dogs as we rolled over laughing whenever a lame innuendo was passed or a balloon exploded ...
We played with dry and water colours. Buckets of water colours were poured on each other today. Water balloons were exploded on our heads,neck..where wasn't it! I am all pink and orange right now. I have few photos which I cannot upload because right now I am sitting in a friend's house.
Hope you all had a great day! Those who played holi I hope you guys had a great time!


You may get an idea of how we play and how we look on Holi from this photo I found on Google.
My colour is not going anywhere soon. :)!!
