Ya ya we get it, some of us don’t really like this festival of colours but shamelessly love the fact that it’s one extra/added/blissful staying-at-home kinda holiday every year. Believe us; we get you and have all the reasons to hate Holi as well. Like why would one really want to get dirty with colours in the first place and later spend two hours in the shower scraping it off? Sounds stupid, right? Here, take a look at a few reasons that makes Holi such a drab and a truly unexciting festival.
1. Too many colours! Like who would want to see so many colours around them? Life in monochrome is way better. Isn’t it?
2. Gujiyas! Like seriously, why would someone enjoy eating Gujiyas? That too when it is available only during one specific time of the year!
3. Socialising and get-togethers? Spreading love and happiness through colours? Are you kidding? Why do all that when you can stay home and waste your life.
4. Who needs the spirit of festivity? I mean there are so many different kinds of ‘spirits’ out there already right? (…that just harm your body and soul!)
5. Memories year after year! No one needs all that!!!
6. Arrival of the fresh spring season? Ah, winters are way better. Since we all (including animals) love freezing to death!
7. They say Holi marks the harvesting of winter crop (Rabi) therefore it’s a super significant festival too! Well, all right but it’s just a holiday at the end of the day, right?
8. An opportunity to forget all differences and indulge in unadulterated fun? Who would like to do that when those ‘differences’ between people are way above their happiness and peace?
There! We don’t celebrate Holi!
On a serious note, if you do think all these reasons still don’t make you want to put on those old clothes and walk out to be a part of Holi celebrations, then we’re sorry!
Holi is one of those few festivals that are celebrated with unbridled zest in our country, irrespective of people’s religions, ethnicity and nativity etc. We urge you….go out and make memories. Forget the differences and mark new beginnings! Bye.
