Is Holi really losing its colour?

There is color in every element of life. Whether it is the vibrant rainbow, green leaf, blue sky or the life giving blood, the world is incomplete without color. “Holi” is one such festival in India which is symbol of unity, togetherness and happiness. The origin of “Holi” dates back to mythological times when lord krishna used to smear colors on his friends, gopis and enjoyed it to the content of his heart. But now with the coming times, the spirit of “Holi” is losing its charm day by day. Nowadays, it is getting more commercialized with bhangs, noise pollution, implementation of toxic chemicals in gulal and water balloons. Usage of such toxic substances give rise to various health problems like renal failure, temporary blindess, dermatitis. It is also been seen that lot of hooligans forceably throw water balloons on people during this eve. Due to such instances, the spirit and joy of “Holi” is slowly diminishing day by day.

Hectic lifestyle and work pressure is one more factor which is disconnecting people from this festival. With hardly any time left for such occasion, people are prefering social networks to send messages and wishes to their family and friends.

So this time, let’s take a initiative to sustain the spirit of Holi by using environment friendly colors and come together to celebrate this festival of color in a real sense.

Wishing everyone a happy and prosperous holi !!


Back to my writing table


Hello Friends !! Last Feb has been fabulously busy with many unexpected changes in my professional as well as personal life. On Feb 22nd, I took my new role as web content writer in E-Commerce Department in my organization which was again a challenge to flex my creative muscles and come up with good liners. Since I had shifted to a new department, I connected with new people whereas I was emotionally detached from my old friends. This one month was pretty busy which kept me glued to my new responsibilities, giving me hardly any time for blog writing. I guess “Dear John” was the only novel I completed reading in January. It tugged my heart, it really did !! I am planning to come up with a new blog post on “Dear John” very soon. This blog post will be a tribute to the spirit of true love which stands the test of time.

Even I am planning to complete all my pending articles which are seriously waiting to get published. So without further waiting anymore, I have returned to my writing-table with a new determination, vision and ideas to write and publish completely refreshing, unique and inspiring articles. God wish me luck !!
