Life is a celebration and in India there are very few months that do not bring festivals. To many people it would look like an overdose of festivities and celebration because I have seen many of my international friends say that India is the only place in the world that provides 365 days of festival time. While Diwali is considered to be the biggest and grand of all, Holi certainly plays an important role in bringing people together. Although, I do not celebrate Holi personally, because of the chemical-based colors that people use, I am still going to celebrate in a grand style, because I also celebrate my birthday on that day. So, March 16 is a Sunday, Holi-day and my birthday, now what else could I have asked for right at the beginning of the year.
