“Holi (pronunciation: /ˈhoʊliː/; Sanskrit: होली Holī) is a spring festival, also known as the festival of colours or the festival of love. It is an ancient Hindu religious festival that has become popular with non-Hindus in many parts of South Asia, as well as people of other communities outside Asia”.

Yesterday a couple of people from my graduate program joined the BU Hindu Students Council for the largest Holi celebration in Boston! Let’s just say it was amazing! I met so many amazing people, and we danced to awesome music for hours. Even After the celebration ended, many people continue to celebrate well into the night.
This celebration got me thinking about how blessed I am to be in the position in which I am. I have a loving family, amazing friends and A bright future ahead of me. (I recently got a full-time job offer to be the Director of Communications at a private boarding school in Pennsylvania, and I’m going to take it)
I know I have been a little down in the dumps lately, but this festival and the company of my friends turned my frown upside down. I’m happy and ready to tackle any challenges that come my way.
Holi is a time for celebration and a time to be thankful! So let’s get you out there and start making our mark in this world! WORK HARD PLAY HARDER!
