Festivals are times when people bond, but lately, these festivals do more harm than good—adding to pollution and noise. So, if you are like us and care about the environment, here are a few things to keep in mind, before heading out this Holi. Also, Holi is the festival of colours, so let us just keep it colourful.
Make your own colours
Strengthen bonds this festive season by making hues at home. Yes, it’s possible. Further, they are affordable, chemical free and it has no side effects. The ingredients are items that are available in your kitchen contour too. Items like gram flour, turmeric, fuller’s earth, sandalwood powder, henna powder; these can be used to make desirable colours. Flowers like Marigold, Gulmohar. Vegetables like beetroot can be used too.
Play Holi with flowers
Well, this came as a surprise to us too, but it can be done! Places like Lucknow and Pushkar encourage this sort of Holi playing. People dress up as Krishna and Radha and usher in spring with used flower petals.
Celebrate a waterless Holi
Can we have a waterless Holi for once? Because, the water levels are going down by the year, and this is the least we can do, no?
PS: You can protect your eyes this Holi, but how? You can spot cool sunglasses, duh! They will amp up your look in seconds.
