Each one of us posses one or more talents but all of us may not realize this. From the routine grind of our life if we can afford to spare some time for any extracurricular activity we’ll be able to help ourselves in many ways. We learn many things which are generally not taught in our school books, like cooperation, teamwork and time management. The most basic reason for joining such activity is that it gives you something better to do than simply wasting our time. Moreover people who are involved and engaged are less likely to become addicted to bad habits, like smoking or drinking. Continue reading “Extracurricular Activities are Awesome”
Like every holi i was subconsciously sceptic on this day. Though i have always encouraged everyone for this festive day like any other socializing extracurricular activity but due to certain points i have somewhere disliked it for the usage of permanent colours, usage of water heavily and colouring some one excessively. This year also like every Holi in the morning we created some good eatables in the kitchen and then applied tilak (very little colours on each other forehead). Soon after all this i went for planning my day ahead.
After some time an old family friend arrived in a very unfriendly manner at our place. He was completely engrossed with revenge colours. Half heartedly i greeted him, he took his liberty to apply colours on my face including my head. Even before i can show my reluctance he was busy with my parents. Everything was ok till now but i lost my temper when he headed towards the room of kids who were ready for their nap. Before i can show my resistance i decided to move downstairs to the another room to avoid any kind of disagreement on this day to be on a holiday Holi Day holy day.
I sat in a tranquil room for the next fifteen minutes. Soon i heard lot of noise on the main gate of our house soon i was able to see through a window that there was a full-fledged holi toli (group) in eastman colour standing outside our house. I rushed towards another secret place of the house to lock myself into the aloof room where i kept on listening to the noise and laughter of this group. Here i got an opportunity to think from a different perspective, on the social media nw tools I try to be quite active, but here am behaving like an alien when the real time social networking is happening right hrere in my house in front of my eyes. On the same time i tried to feel like a celebrity whose fans have gathered outside his house to meet him bit who is not responding to them.
Within fraction of time i removed my pullover and reached outside where i saw the last person departing our house. I shouted from the distance, “Hey come on, colour me…” A couple of other guys who slightly know me or had seen me on our house top just ran away such that i was challenging them to colour me. The last person who was unfamiliar to me stood there and kept staring at me that what does i exactly meant.
In fact i do not find any opportunity to get mixed up with the people at my locality. And i never look forward to please anyone in my surrounding including monkeys. For animal activists i have never shot down any creature where as the above gesture is to just frighten the monkeys who frequently spoil the plants at our attic. It is also a mark of disapproval for the people of my locality who keeps on pleasing these creatures by offering eatables due to their religious beliefs. I strongly discourage it as these creatures take you for granted.
Anyways I managed to stop the part of the group which happily applied colour to me and had some photographs for us.
There after played holi whole heartedly with family…
A very very Happy Holi 2010 to one and all! Though I am scared to participate in this festival. But I have realized the fact that that one should participate in it fully gracefully,
When, its time for Holi, please don’t hold you back and enjoy the festival to the hilt by participating with full enthusiasm in every small tradition related to the festival.
Holi is primarily concerned with happiness, colours and fun. Hope you are making most of it. In spite of being such a colourful festival, there are various aspects of Holi which makes it so significant for our lives.
The festival not only gets us close to our religion and our mythology as it is essentially the celebration of various legends associated with the festival, It helps to bring the society together and strengthen the secular fabric of our country. From personal, socio-cultural, religious to biological there is every reason why we must heartily enjoy the festival and cherish the reasons for its celebrations.
Though they might not be so perceptible but a closer glance and a little contemplation will reveal the significance of Holi as a human being in more ways than meets the eyes.
Here present two moods for Holi fest:

The main objective of Lord Krishna’s birth was to free Mother Earth from the wickedness of demons. Playing an important part in Mahabharata and propagating the theory of bhakti and good karma were other important objectives.
Krishna Janmashtami, one of the most popular festivals in India celebrates birth of Sri Krishna. Functions and prayer meetings are organised by Hindus to share the glory of their beloved God, Lord Krishna. The festival of Janmashtami is considered a very pious day by Hindus. People perform elaborate poojas during the festival and keep day long fast.
Dancing is a matter of joy, festivity and prosperity. Irrespective of the fact whether one is capable of dancing or not it is true that every one has got a desire to dance. When one in not in a position to dance he or she enjoy’s watching others dance. This is the reason for the grand success of UK Television Dancing Show Strictly Come Dancing in over 30 countries including America, Australia, New Zealand, and Italy.
