Hope your Holi did bring you the colours of happiness and joy in your life.
If you ask about my Holi, I woke up at 12 noon. Last night I slept at 3 am after the shoot. I wasn’t interested in playing with colours and in dance. I don’t even remember when the last time I played with colours.
For today my plan was to leave for home.
But before that, I wanted to click something for this Holi. After all, Holi is full of colours.
Everyone who tried to put colour on me, “I am allergic”, I lied. And they did believe me. So I was safe.
When I saw him, full of colours.
A question raised in my mind. For all the orthodox-minded people, who believe that colours own religion or that each religion has its colours, who judge people based on their colour, who believe they are better than others. I have a question for you. What do you think about him? The man in the photograph.
He is colourful.
Do they say anything about him?
What do you feel right now about this man?
I think that’s enough.
I am not saying stop thinking. But just stop dictating your behaviour on the basis of what do you think before you understand someone.
Because no matter what, you don’t know the whole story.
You don’t know what next person goes through in these situations.
He is human too just like you. You don’t have the right to criticize or play with someone’s feeling.
If one person doesn’t feel safe in its own country, then we have no right to say that we are free.
Because you are still under your fear.
Fear of getting judged.
Fear of other’s opinion.
Fear of choosing what you want to.
Because we are free.
Free to choose.
Free to have dreams.
Free to achieve.
Free to love.
Free to fly.
Let us be “Free”
