Medley Of Colours


Pallav Bhusal

As the vibrant hues of Holi painted the streets of Kathmandu, I found myself immersed in a kaleidoscope of colours, laughter, and joy. Celebrating this festival of colours had always been a cherished tradition in my family, but this year, the festivities took on a whole new dimension as I experienced the magic of Holi not only with my loved ones but also with my friends amidst the bustling energy of public events in the heart of Kathmandu.

The morning of Holi had dawned with anticipation and excitement in my household. As the sun had risen, my family and I had gathered in our courtyard, armed with buckets of colourful powders and water. With laughter echoing in the air, we had begun the age-old ritual of smearing each other with vibrant hues, marking the beginning of a day filled with love and togetherness.

There had been something incredibly special about celebrating Holi with family. It had been more than just a festival; it had been a time to strengthen bonds, create memories, and revel in the unconditional love that bound us together. As we had danced to the rhythmic beats of traditional music, our differences had dissolved into a sea of colours.

However, as the morning festivities had drawn to a close, another adventure had awaited me – celebrating Holi with my friends in public places events across Kathmandu. Venturing into the heart of the city, I had been greeted by a riot of colours and a carnival. The streets had been alive with the sounds of laughter and music, as people from all walks of life had come together to revel in the spirit of Holi.

Joining my friends, I had found myself swept up in the whirlwind of excitement. We had danced amidst a sea of colours, our faces adorned with bright hues, as we had embraced the joyous chaos around us. It had been a celebration of youth, friendship, and the boundless spirit of Holi.

One of the most enchanting aspects of celebrating Holi in public events has been the sense of camaraderie. Strangers had become friends, barriers had been broken down, and for a fleeting moment, the world had felt like one big, colourful family. As I had exchanged smiles and laughter with people from all walks of life, I had been reminded of the power of festivals to unite us in a shared sense of humanity.

However, amidst the revelry, it had been important to remember the significance of responsible celebration. While Holi had been a time for uninhibited joy, it had been essential to respect the boundaries and consent of others. By ensuring that our celebrations had been inclusive and mindful of others' comfort, we could create a safe and enjoyable environment for everyone to partake in the festivities.

As the day had drawn to a close and the sun had dipped below the horizon, I had found myself reflecting on the whirlwind of colours, laughter, and memories that Holi had brought into my life. From the intimate moments shared with family to the exhilarating energy of public events, each experience had left an indelible mark on my heart.

Holi had been a thread that had bound us together, weaving moments of joy, love, and togetherness into the fabric of our existence. And as I had bid farewell to yet another magical day of celebration, I had carried with me the vibrant memories and the promise of many more colourful adventures to come.
