Happy Holi

Thankfully, the title of this post was not already used unlike that of this post! The only other time I posted around Holi was 2 years ago. Let me repeat those wishes first:

होलीको उपलक्ष्यमा तपाईंलाई हार्दिक शुभकामना!

होली मुबारक हो आपको!

Happy Holi to You!

A very fitting sher on this occasion (read the disclaimer in ‘Shayari’ tab above if you’ve not read it recently and then continue…):

भीतर के रंग उड़ चुके, बाहर गुलाल क्या करे
मन में न हो मिठास तो मोदक का थाल क्या करे

Bheetar ke rang ud chuke, baahar gulaal kya kare
Man mein na ho mithaas to modak ka thaal kya kare

When internals have been grayed out, what’ll external colours do
When the heart is devoid of sweetness, what’ll a plate of sweets do

-संध्या सिंह (Sandhya Singh)

Enjoy the day!
