We do hope the vibrant festival of colours fills your life with love, laughter and jubilations. May your relationships, friendships and family life grow and bloom just like the colours of the spring flowers.
Just a word of caution
While celebrating Holi this year you must remember to take precautions to ensure you keep yourselves safe from infections like coronavirus. Social distancing and maintaining a high rate of personal hygiene, like washing hands, not touching the face, nose, mouth and eyes will keep you safe to a great extent. It is equally important not to touch another person’s face for the same reason like we do when rubbing colours.
Holi is a social festival and we have always celebrated it by mingling among crowds of friends and acquaintances, in housing societies and colonies. However, even if just one person in the group has symptoms of coronavirus it can be transmitted to many more and that would surely dampen the happiness the celebrations bring.
It is therefore, advisable to avoid mass gatherings and crowded places. Do not go to Holi gatherings as it is impossible to detect if anyone is showing signs of cold and fever. Even if people play Holi with masks on, they may need to remove them because they could get damaged with colour or water. Infections can spread once the masks are off, or from the surface where they have been placed after removing.
Play Holi with your immediate family and you can get to spend quality time together.
