Bhang ka rang jama ho chaka chak,
Phir lo paan chabaye
Are aisa jhatka
Lage he jiya ko
Punar janam hoye jaaye
I now know what Amitabh meant in that inconic son from Don. I had my first real Bhang this morning. It took a couple of hours to take hold. Extreme drowsiness, giggling fits, slowdown of senses, relaxed limbs.
But that wasn't what Holi was all about for us this year. After almost 6 years I was lucky enough to be in India for Holi. And it was Squiggles' first Holi. We caught up with my family who are on any sane day a boisterous lot, but decidedly worse on Holi. An open house for friends was hosted by my aunt and the result was some good wholesome fun like I haven't had in a long while.
Happy Holi! I hope you had a good one too. Here's a picture of Squiggles from the day, with a yummy gujiya in her hand.
