Holi Is Not A Holiday!

*Chilling at home with my brother*

Him: So what plans on Holi?

Me: Nothing really. The usual. Make bhang, then drink it and play Holi.

Him: The entire day?

Me: No, only in the evening.

Him: And the rest of the day?

Me: I’ve office.

Him: What??!

Me: What?

Him: We have office on Holi?

Me: Yes.

Him: Since when?

Me: Since always!

Him: What? Holi isn’t a national holiday?

Me: Nope!

Him: What! My entire life has been a lie!

Me: Not like you celebrate Holi!
Him: So?

Me: Nevermind.

Him: This is bullshit! Just pure bullshit! No holiday on Holi!

*Storms off*

Here’s what really happened:

Be Indian, Do Indian!

Yesterday, I got this forward from a friend. The points mentioned in them were quite interesting, and I thought that we’ve all done one or more of these things.

I thought I’ll share this with my readers.

Things That Make Us Indian

  1. When the shampoo bottle seems to be over, I pour some water in it, shake it, and use it for another bath.
  2. That for me a toothpaste isn’t over until I’ve entirely flattened it out and started rolling it up from the back.
  3. That I buy broccoli and avocados for 300 Rupees, but still ask for some dhaniya patta for free.
  4. That I don’t just recycle gifts, I recycle the gift-wrapping paper too.
  5. Our home has fine bone china crockery which is used only when guests visit.
  6. That I worry about price of gold without any reason of buying it!
  7. That I will beat the crap out of my remote to make it work but not change the battery
  8.  I get so disappointed if the Panipuri guy doesn’t give a free sukha puri in the end when I ask for one.
  9. That I won’t have my breakfast and starve myself if I have been invited for a lunch buffet.
  10.  That when my T-shirt gets old, I use it as night wear, when it gets older, I play Holi in it and then I use it as a pochha.
  11. That I ask for extra oregano and chili flakes from the Dominos guy, so that I can use them later in Maggi.

I thought this was pretty accurate.

Lets have a fun game, you don’t you all vote for what you’ve done from this list? Also, if you have other lists, do mention them in the comments.
