You must’ve been living under a rock all this time if you don’t know about Holi, and that it is just around the corner. Some parts of India still celebrate it with the same vigor as it was celebrated hundreds of years ago. No, that doesn’t mean asking “KabhaiHoli, Holikabhai?” like Gabbar Singh. But the festival has been able to adapt itself in to a global festival which means it is way easier now to spot foreigners going gaga over clouds of colours. Still, it is not hard to distinguish between types of people you meet at a Holi party, even when their faces are colour smeared.
1. The Guerrilla Attacker:
We all have faced this category of people. Well, not really “faced” them because they are a kind that like to surprise you. You’ll be drenched in colour before you could finish saying WTF…
2. The High Flyer:
They are the persons who’ll ask you the same thing every time they see you. The party may have moved to a different location but they won’t be able to go past “Bhaangkahanhai?”
3. The Selfie Kings and Queens:
Say whatever, Instagram should be up to date! This is the golden rule for this category. They won’t bother you much except when they want a selfie with you. Beware, the perfect selfie
could take anywhere between two to two thousand attempts.
4. The Mover and Shaker:
Music or not, these people will not shy away from showing off some perfectly rehearsed moves. They’re great at lip-syncing and hard to say no to!
5. The Peeping Toms:
Can’t have any party without them! They won’t actively participate and still won’t miss out on any of the fun. Be it windows or balconies, they’re not difficult to spot and their ‘heads ups’ are your best defence again guerrilla attackers.
