Holi Fun in the Sun

Last year and the year before we had partly wet but mostly dry holi.  Not completely dry, but we took one bucket of water per family and used it till it was done.  We still slapped colors on everyone – dry colors, made from beet, potato, turmeric and the like.  And it was relatively easy to save water because in the past two years it was actually too cold to get soaking wet.

This year we started off the same way, each carrying one bucket of water and our pichkaris to the playground, along with our packets of vegetable based colors.

But maybe because, unlike the past two years, this time it was blazing hot, some of the kids, by which I mean adults, could not resist turning on the hose.   I appealed for restraint but was was met with “it’s only once a year ….”

If you can’t beat ’em, join ’em!

At least we put the mud to good use!
