Like different colours are more vibrant when on a white canvas, similarly Holi is best enjoyed when wearing white clothes. During this time of the year, the weather also becomes favourable after the chilly winters of Delhi.
Personally, I am not very fond of Holi but when the time comes, I am always wet with colours on all over my body. That’s the aura of this festival. A person of every age enjoys this day. And as a tradition, we take blessings from our elders and give love to our young ones.
Children- the most excited ones
As it is that children don’t listen to any rules and just run away to play with the water but it is my duty to ensure a safe Holi for my kids.
- First and for all, wish anybody and everybody ‘HAPPY HOLI’ with a smile on your face. This makes your day and the receiver’s day good.
- I oil their hair deeply so that the colour just slips off the hair and don’t damage their scalp.
- I apply sunscreen to their all exposed areas for the same reason as above.
- I don’t buy them adulterated colours that they see at the shops which stay on for days after the festival. Instead, I buy organic colours and the colours released from pure flowers when soaked in water the previous night.
- Balloons can’t be ignored so I tell them not to throw in anybody’s face but on the body.
- I explain to them that in excitement, do not rub the colours harshly in anybody’s face. Also to be careful to avoid eyes and lips that can be harmful if swallowed.
It is always a pleasure to relax and watch your children playing a safe Holi.
