The Real Holi

-

Even though Ariana had been playing holi* since childhood, this year seemed very special. This time, she enjoyed Holi for the very reason that it’s known for – Colours. She had been battling with colour blindness since birth. This condition made her life colourless. After multiple treatments, she was prescribed the glasses for the same. Her colour blindness glasses helped her identify the colours around her and she could actually see how colourful the whole environment was. “Happy Holi!!”, she squealed with joy and applied gulal* on her brother’s face. This was indeed the best Holi of her life, a colourful Holi.
