Holi is a festival of colors which brings happiness and brotherhood among everyone. This beautiful festival of India is now also celebrated worldwide. When foreigners visit India, they get thrilled by the unique celebrations of our festival and themselves dive in them to celebrate the joy.
But what are we doing in the name of a festival today? Recently two ladies from Delhi’s Lady Shri Ram College faced a very disturbing incident because of our very famous,”Bura na mano, holi hai”. Semen filled balloons were thrown at them when they were just busy among themselves.
Is this where our generation is heading to? Is this how we carry our cultures and traditions? Harassing women in the name of festivals? We are spoiling the name of our country and festivals. Festivals are meant to be celebrated not to harass people.
I don’t want to comment about the safety of women in the country as we all are anyway aware about it but this incident has really disturbed me and anyone who read this would feel the same.
