“Anything goes in India this week as people welcome Spring with a weeklong festival of colors. The festival, much like Mardi Gras, is a celebration of mischief and merrymaking, but the holiday honors Hindi mythology instead of commencing Christian Lent. Wednesday was Holi, the main day determined by the full moon, and people celebrated by throwing colorful powder and water at each other.”

“I’d like to go to India
Live in a big white house in the forest
Drink gin and tonic and play a grand piano
Read a few books
Far from what saddens my heart
Try to live away from it”
