Holi - the festival of colors is here and it’s my favorite festival after Diwali of course. Before the birth of my daughter, I have played the messiest, with not only colors but also eggs, tomatoes, cooked food, mud, oil. To be honest, memories are hazy and let’s leave it at that.
But now I am a mother and trust me guys I am a really possessive human when it comes to my princess. So, by default, it can’t be a messy one this year, but I want her to understand and enjoy all the festivals. This is not because I am being a religious mother, but a spiritual one at heart. According to me, spirituality is about finding permanent joys. And what better way than Holi to find joy and have some fun.
Last year, she was just two-months-old and I was going through bad postpartum depression but this year is special. I want to fill this year with beautiful colors and their significance in her life.
Let’s start with my favorite color YELLOW: The color of Sunshine, I wish the yellow color brings in a lot of Hope and Warmth. You my little sunshine have brought so much warmth in our lives and I hope i will be able to make this year a bright and colorful one for us.
GREEN: The color of Life, I wish the color green brings in a lot of Freshness and Energy. You are my dose of power packed energy, your smile makes my mornings fresh and energetic. I hope I can be energetic enough to match up to the speed with which you are growing and learning new things every passing day.
RED: The color of Love and Anger, until you happened, for me Love was more about romance and desires, but it’s you, who have made me realize the POWER of PURE LOVE. This year, I want to be more Passionate about being a better person keeping aside my short-tempered nature, so that I set a better example for you.
BLUE: The color that represents Sky and Ocean, I hope to support you with strong wings to fly high, for your dreams my dear sky should not be the limit. I wish to be able to give your thoughts a depth of an ocean. I promise myself to groom you into a confident and free bird.
PINK: A colour that reflects everything that’s SWEET. I wish this color of the sweetness, spreads lot of Laughter and brings Playful days. With this color that symbolizes Feminism, I hope I raise a strong headed and soft hearted woman.
Every season, every festival is a new experience with you my princess. And with all my excitement I want to celebrate this season of blooming flowers on palas trees and festival of colors that spreads happiness around.
Wish you all lovely people a very Happy Holi from me and mine!
