There were simply too many images of colourful faces. They were the result of small and big hands like this.
Your face, cloth and bag will be the canvas for the ‘artists’.
If you have lots of hair, … they can be part of the canvas.
Wearing spectacles would not spear you from being smeared.
The glass might just provide some temporary protections.
Your face would start off pretty clean with one or two stroke.
Or started with monotone single colour.
Soon, you smile or did not smile, you would be greeted with “Happy Holi”!
Then, more colours will be added.
If there was any ‘spare’ space on your neck or cloth, no empty canvas would be spared.
No difference if you are local or foreign visitor.
You asked for it.
All you can do was stop thinking and enjoy the moment of care-free happiness.
Did you regret joining?
NO WAY! We will be back in 2013!
