Happy Holi!!

Holi has not been one of the festivals I have really waited for, and this time was not any different too. And till the morning, only thing happening good for me at Holi this time was an off from the office.
 
But by the time the day went ahead, I sent some wishes for Holi to my near and dear ones. And while the day was passing off silently, I experienced something very great and would like to share with all of you and I am sure you will also love to see such a Holi.
 
I went to Golden Temple with family & our relatives from Sirsa in night. First of all, my cousin was to be honoured at Sri Akal Takht Sahib with a computer, the reason being he had won the Chess Championship for Under 7 age group children in Haryana and the computer was presented to him by 9.15 PM and by that time, Paalki Saahib was also ready to go inside the Golden Temple in which Guru Granth Sahib Ji were to be brought for Sukhaasan. Most of you might not be aware of the fact that even Holi is played in Golden Temple too on the Hola Mohalla day (that was today - by the time, the post gets written, it would become yesterday). Just that instead of water, there are room sprays and instead of gulaal, there are rose petals. While the palki sahib was coming from the bridge to the resting place of holy book of Guru Granth Sahib Ji, it was seeming like rain was pouring from the sky while there were room freshners being sprayed by all the sangat. A lovely scene for the eyes and a wonderful experience for the soul.  And I just can't get suitable words really to just express how I was feeling at that moment.
 
We had a DigiCam with us but unluckily, the battery just betrayed us and we could not click any pictures of the scene. And enriching our day more, we got to enter the Golden Temple after the doors were closed for the seva.
 
Finally, the day has ended but the wait for the next year's Hola Mohalla has already begun. :D
 
And friends, I didn't get the Anoushka Video yet. The search is on.
