Pardon me, fair lady,
But your white stings the eye.
How about I sprinkle a little saffron
See, how it complements your attire?!
But wait, I noticed your eyes
Are a beautiful shade of green.
I have just the colour to match them too;
Do you see what I mean?
Mind you though, M’Lady,
Pink is the one you need
To complement the
Rouge on your cheeks.
Here have some thandai,
Its laced with a little bhaang.
Oh, worry not, you won’t faint.
That little won’t keep you high for long.
Or if it will, what the heck,
Enjoy the festive gaiety!
Chomp on these gujiyas,
Smear me with some colours.
I wish you a Happy Holi!
Holi is not just the festival of colours, it is the festival of communal harmony, togetherness and a celebration of the victory of good over evil. I hope this year Holi brings you warmth, laughter, happiness and the love of all those that matter to you.
Wish you and your family a very Happy Holi!
