This holi was a true learning experience for GC. We expected a good eco-friendly holi but were in for a surprise when it turned out to be the most pleasant and amazing holi any of us had ever played. For a change we dint have a single 'pucca' colour with us. And the natural colours were truly safe was proven by the fact that even if by mistake it entered any of our eyes, it dint cause any harm/irritation/swelling etc. In fact the colours dusted off easily in one wash and did not leave behind traces on our skins.
3 buckets of water not only ensured we had our share of fun but also ensured we did our bit to not waste excess of water which would have otherwise happened with the usage of pipes, running tap water, continuous filling of buckets etc.
This holi, for GC was all about getting together, with our own GCites and even non-GCites and enjoying in a safe and friendly way. GC strongly recommends everyone to plan out amazing eco-friendly holis for the next year! And we hope more of you can join us! What say? :)
Happy holi everyone.
