Never heard the term before, we just referred to it as Color powder! Gulaal - the colo that doesn't hurt the skin and is completely safe! Holii!! :D
I'm not a great lover of soiling myself with colors that don't leave your clothes or skin but I've enjoyed those three Holis I've had. 2 from college and 1 today :D It was office, it was a new jean, a new t shirt and yet i didn't bother! I had a great time! All of us loved the running and chasing!
Reminds me of those days when we tried everything possible to get the color off. Oil, cream, toner, shampoo, bath soap, clothes soap and even kerosene!!! Long sleeves to cover the color and dinners in the room to hide the face, sleep-acting during the 10 o clock warden check-in and sealed lips while we were screaming decibels inside! :D Cha ya - RMH was fun! Wish I could just rewind and stay there! Who's time machine is working?
