After Holi….

After celebrating Holi and a long weekend, one would expect Bangaloreans to be in the pink of health. But alas, it is not only the health which is pink….

Who is going to wear those clothes? Or will they be set aside for next year’s celebrations?

And here’s the driveway to an apartment building…

Every year, the newspapers and the media stress the importance of getting “safe” and eco-friendly colours to play Holi with. But the point is, when young children go to the nearest shop to buy colours, what’s on offer? That’s what will be used, whether the colours are safe or not.

If this pink colour can stain clothing and cement so much, what would it be doing to the sensitive skin of children, I wonder!
