Festive spirit

And how charming it is to get hit with a fish (in public!) amidst water-colour balloons, bhang, gulal et al! To obtain the needful, execute the following conversation with an arbit, multi-coloured eediyet (nothing racist, nay) around the premises of a certain college in Bangalore notorious for its 'extravagant' Holi celebrations. Telepathy, please.

Him: Tomato?

You: Scoot in the other direction, snot rag.

Him: Egg?

You: Scoot in the other direction, snot rag.
Him: Vokay then, happy Holi!

You: Spank you very much. Shame to you.

And then..



The side of mine shoulder still smelleth rotten. *sniff*
Mine tresses still drip purple. *grrr*
And the coward attacked me from behind before 'scooting' away quite literally, dodging a second look.

But this will not go unsettled, will it, Dowdy? The street will be stalked till thou art paid back in kind. Vengeance is sweet.

I escaped holi :D. Those who stayed back at the hostel had their shirt torn apart and made to roll in the mud and had to jump into a tank filled with coloured water :D
Now, your experience was not sssoooo bad, was it? :P

prakash said...

arjun, ur hostel is better da, we had to have a bath in the mud water and we were thrown onto the ground, my back still has the scars. luckily my shirt stays in one piece!

and u need not try killing, me i'm already dead!

Akshata said...

^ All in good humour, friend. :p

Typical with boys. That's how it is in Mumbai and other parts of Northern India whose populace I think constitutes a greater part of your hostels. But fish.. :x

lol, it never fails to amuse me, when I think of all those things that people can possibly consider as 'fun'. Diwali, followed by Holi, are the crowning glories of all Indian festivals, in that sense of speaking.

If Aksie knows what I'm trying to say, this is lost week ah? :D

Liar!! :P

Try Dahi Handi during Janmashthami in Bombay some time. :D
