Rang Barse…

Holi is undoubtedly one of the widely celebrated, vibrant and popular festivals of India. It is played with great fervour and joy in almost every Indian home. Today even foreigners who come to India or are acquainted with the Indian culture recognize the beauty and true spirit of the ‘Festival of Colors.’ The festival has, in recent times, spread to parts of Europe and North America as a spring celebration of love, frolic and colours. Holi celebrations start on the night before Holi with a bonfire known as ‘Holika’, around which people sing and dance. On the day of Holi, people smear colors or gulal on each other in groups or individually. There are sprinklers for splashing liquid or water-based colors, popularly called a pichkari. There are face paints, glitters, invisible colors, herbal colors and what not!

People host Holi parties at their own homes, clubs and various open spaces where colored water and gulal flows endlessly. When it comes to celebrating Holi, people just forget all restrictions and enjoy to the fullest! It is real fun to watch people splash colors at each other and let hair down, carefree and full of spirit. Different Holi special delicacies are available on this occasion. Many even have bhaang or thandai, escalating the level of enthusiasm.

So just soak in the excitement of this beautiful festival and be colorful! HAPPY HOLI!!!

A beautiful poem “Remember” by Christina Rossetti on the eve of St. Valentines Day!

Remember me when I am gone away,
Gone far away into the silent land;
When you can no more hold me by the hand,
Nor I half turn to go yet turning stay.
Remember me when no more day by day
You tell me of our future that you plann’d:
Only remember me; you understand
It will be late to counsel then or pray.
Yet if you should forget me for a while
And afterwards remember, do not grieve:
For if the darkness and corruption leave
A vestige of the thoughts that once I had,
Better by far you should forget and smile
Than that you should remember and be sad.

Kites, Rajneeti and Some More…

At last, Kites — the much awaited film directed by Anurag Basu and produced by Rakesh Roshan has hit theaters across the world on 21st May, 2010. The international version of Kites would be released in 60 countries around the world. The movie is a gripping love story with some melodious numbers. Lots of speculations and expectations were doing the rounds for Kites, what with its supposed sizzling chemistry between Hrithik Roshan and Barbara Mori, exotic locales, and spectacular action sequences. We’ll have to wait and see if the fireworks fly, but I am sure the movie would manage to draw big bucks for the box office. I am dying to catch the film!

Next in the list is veteran filmmaker Prakash Jha’s Rajneeti, which is a big budget multi-starrer film stirring up a lot of controversies and expectations.

Raavan, another big budget film directed by noted filmmaker Mani Ratnam is expected to release in June. The soundtrack of the film is by A.R. Rahman. This film is a modern adaptation of the great Indian epic, Ramayana. Waiting to watch this one as well.

A bunch of good Hollywood films are expected to release this June, like Prince of Persia, Ondine, Killers, Splice, The Twilight Saga: Eclipse, and Knight and Day, starring Tom Cruise and Cameron Diaz. June is going to be the hottest month for sure!


The Feeling of Love…

Love is a wonderful, serene and indescribable feeling…a special gift from God! Only one who has truly felt this emotion can say how beautiful it is to be in love. Love has many shades, many sides and many sensations. Love brings with it bountiful of joy, colors and effervescence; yet one cannot escape its grief as well. The longings, the pining for beloved, the craving to be with him/her brings untold sorrow amid the sweet feeling of love.

It’s great to be in love…to feel the scent of love and spiralling emotions. It’s great to wake up every morning knowing that there is someone who is there for you; someone who cares for you, and someone who thinks about you. When you feel good inside, it shows on your face. You feel as if everything is going your way…everything which was not working before, suddenly starts falling in place. You don’t feel alone anymore! You are not scared to face the world! True love comes silently; and we don’t even recognize it sometimes…we try to suppress our emotions and try to dismiss it as a passing fancy and consequently suffer more. How do you know that you are in love? Well…you just know! There are no bells ringing in your ears, no special dreams to let you know. It’s only you who gets the signal and understand. Love just happens…it is not a calculated move; not something you can plan. In this context, I would like to quote this beautiful song by UB40, which is one of my favorites:

Wise Men say
only fools rush in
but I cant help
falling in love with you

Shall I stay
would it be a sin
if I can’t help falling in love with you…

Like a river flows, surely to the sea
Darlin so it goes, somethings are meant to be..
Take my hand, take my whole life too
for I can’t help fallin in love with you…

Like a river flows, surely to the sea
Darlin so it goes, somethings are meant to be..

Take my hand take my whole life too for I cant help
falling in love with you

for I cant help falling in love with…… you.

falling in love

So, if you find true love, just cherish it and be happy…cherish the sweetness and scent of love and thank your stars! Thank God that He has bestowed you with this priceless feeling!
