Two festivals are very special for me and those are Holi and Diwali.Holi is the favorite festival for me since childhood and I wait for this holi every year. I am fond of colours and this is the reason of my extra love for this festival. As I sip a cup of coffee and sit around in my room, I see myself surrounded by batch of school friends who are rearing to fill their buckets with the colourful water and get ready to throw at the passerby. I can feel the thrill and excitement still and weird smile on my face which comes alive automatically as I try to imagine a young boy passing through the gate next door. I would love to travel back in that time and to my home city of birth where I have spent most of my best time as a child. I would dance with my friend on songs of Hindi films and make rangoli.Then I also help my father in setting up the programme for the evening party. I would be made responsible for taking care of colours and drinks. The party would start in the morning and would end up late in the night. We would drink and get yourself into colourful dresses and totally immersed in holi atmosphere. We would hire a disco boy who would play the music and make the party sensational. We also had a good budget for holi dance and artificial rain water. We would have buckets full of colour water. We also made an arrangement for snacks and beverages. Overall it would a great occasion to celebrate with close relatives and friends.
This is my childhood memories which still revolve in my mind and all credit goes to my parents for making it so much memorable for me. I feel it is the right time as I should take some time to visit them again to my parent’s house and give them a big hug and surprise on this weekend with a Holi party. I feel this would make them really happy and it will be a small token of appreciation to them. I will get some red and green colours and a packet bunch of balloons by my side. I will ask my cousins to gather at my parent’s house this time and we should celebrate this festival as we used to do it in past time. Life is short and we must be ready to live and make use of it.
