Vilayati HOLI

Time:11.55 pm
Place:3951,Albert Street(my apartment)

Am back.Am exhausted,tired and my voice is choked.Reason?Undergone Holi celebration in Vancouver.
Yes , you heard me right.Some bunch of NRI’s had organized Holi festival for the desi’s here.We grabbed our ticket for 15$ to be at this event,totally confused about the outcome but still breathing air of excitement.The gang was big and i was luck that some Keeda public made it to this event.(ya bombay ka public tha 😉 ).We reached as usual late and witnessed a group of ppl listening to Karan-johar’s song and celebrating holi with pinch of colors and less matka jhatka.Some foreigner’s were enjoying more than the indians.

We tried insurging in to the group, but realised very soon that this isn’t the public which matches our frequency and energy.
Then,we started our own version of holi celebration.Yeaaa.. we hollered songs of Amitabh ..asked the DJ to play RANG BARSE.. we almost caught the attention of the whole crowd.. They must me wondering where the hell this guys suddenly popped from? We continued our Dhammal masti and playing with colors.All kind of dances were on display start from karate dance,disablility moves,hiphop to ganpati,nashik dhol dance.I was getting under the impression that we are making too much noise.But then one of the organizer came to us and said “you guys made this event lively.. Keep going”..and then we never stopped.
The 2nd surprise was the cultural event that followed “Dhuliwandan”.The hall was red with white siffon tables and wine glasses neatly placed in symmetric order.It was a perfect replica of the OSCAR’s. I was really amazed by the whole grandeur setup and the royal treatment.The ambience,tables decorated with flowers and white table cloth,red carpet, big screens and awesome waitress were like a dream.The excitment overflowed.The show was OK kind, but we were very busy with our own fun and masti.Neverthless, We clapped for every performance ..we danced with the participant’s , we sang Holi songs.The public was “UDAS” (boring).They were silent like dead bodies lacking any energy and too lazy to even clap for the performers.The behaviour seemed  like they came for a science Exhibition.The anchor tried hard to wake the public,but the public was more interested in snacks, and their own gossip.But we were unstoppable,at times we controlled ourself from hyperexcitment and overshadowing.

The dinner was also awesome.Again the dance floor opened up.This time some few guys from the crowd joined us.One thing I noticed was that the younger crowd (indian’s) were not at all significant in this whole picture.I cud see aunties and supermakeUP loaded witches/bitches,bald mens and hyper noisy kids.There was no trace of humans @age of 20-25.It was the same case in a hindu temple where ppl gather every sunday and food is served for all.Where are this younger generations?
They must be busy doping and visiting night pubs.Canada is a doper’s paradise.All stuff are available openly without any restrictions.The government allows LSD Booth’s and weeds  for teens.Its a free country afterall.

Many times during late office hrs, I had came across Drunkards and Doper’s in bus and on roads.Heard that every kid in high school gets a dose of these stuffs either by choice or by pressure.This is the only problem with this unchecked freedom in canada.
Here, you get pinched by police if u r caught wid weeds.Officer’s can’t dare to slap you.You must have a lawyer beside you and then you are king,everyone has one.I accumulated these gyan from a local office friend.Still eager to knw more about this place and ppl and their problems.

Let me cut this post short, after all am writing after a long brkk.No overdose.The day was full of fun,masti,dancing and hallagulla.Never expected such kind of HOLI in a foreign LAND.
