8 Types Of Interesting People You Meet On Holi

All year round, you celebrate festivals with full energy and high fervour, some of you love Diwali, some of you wait for Rakhi to meet your brothers while some of you sleep on the night of 24th Dec in hope to wake up to Santa’s gift by your side ! But how many of these festivals actually give you a chance to embrace your wild side 😉 Let’s be honest, none ! And so, especially for your wild side to break the barriers and celebrate with ecstasy (No, we ain’t talking about turning into Christian Grey), there is a festival specially created to rock your world – Holi !!

So let’s set some ground rules here. Holi has no rules. So let us brief you about these varied species you shall encounter on this day and you might as well take it all in stride and give it back, but not take offense: D

  1. The Stranger We know that Mumma told you to not talk to a stranger, but Holi holds no such rule. So if a stranger is coming to color you and not doing anything inappropriate, just color him/her back with the same zeal and laugh about it !

  2. Streetsmart KidsYou leave your house on your cycle/bike/car and some kids on the street or that little naughty kid on the balcony in your neighborhood drops a water balloon at you hurting you a little bit and obviously leaving you dripping in colors, don’t frown ! Make a strategy to do it back to them 😀

    Holi - water balloons

  3. Bhaang MixersOh the classic sign of Holi ! Someone mixing bhaang in your thandai when you least expect it and the after effects are horrible, for you ! While those watching you are having a gala time 😉 Let it go and enjoy the craziness 😀

  4. The Black HandedLike every year, you swore to play with gulaal and some water this year, but who will explain this to the wild freaks who are black handed and are going to turn you in a blackface with ‘pakka rang’ in few seconds ! Just keep your home made face packs ready and bring it on 😉

  5. The Bouncers 

    By bouncers, we sure don’t mean the ones who would protect you, what we mean is the strong ones who are waiting for the right moment to spot the easiest prey and throw them in a bucket or a tub or a tank of water on Holi 😀 Don’t hold it against them and rather lay a trap 😉Holi 2

  6. PrankstersThey can start from people ganging up on you to something as disgusting as throwing ketchup and eggs at you 😉 Pranks don’t stop and so shouldn’t you 😀

  7. The 3 p.m. VisitorsThe time around 3 p.m. when after an hour’s shower, you think you are going to eat and melt into your dear bed, you have a surprise visitor who came to wish you a bit late and won’t leave without coloring you all over again ! Be prepared 😉

  8. Forceful Draggers 

    Just when you thought you will take a break from Holi this year, a doorbell rings and before you know, someone with colored face drags you out and breaks your dry spell 😉Holi - 7
    Bura Na Maano Holi hai !!

15 Bollywood Songs Of 2015 To Dance On This Holi

You have invited all your friends to your Holi bash, colors are ready, menu is ready but is your dance playlist ready? Chances are that you have forgotten this super important detail! If you do not have a peppy dance playlist for a Holi party then the party will lose half of its fun. After all what’s a party without some heavy duty music?

We Jaipurites listen to all kinds of music but when it comes to electric events, Bollywood dance numbers are our jam. We are sure that you liked our Holi songs list but there’s no rule that only Holi songs have to be played in a Holi party. It’s the festival of multiple colors so you should also have all kinds of songs with you. There are so many amazing dance songs in Bollywood and here are 15 of the top foot-tapping numbers from this year and last year to set the mood of your party-

1. High Heels- Ki And Ka

The old version of this song by Honey Singh has been renewed this year to give us a brand new dance number. It has sassy beats and funky lyrics.

JB

2. Kar Gai Chull- Kapoor And Sons

Another popular song remixed to suit the boho tastes. This song is everywhere these days and even we can’t get enough.

JB

3. Kheech Meri Photo- Sanam Teri Kasam

The movie might have gone unnoticed but not this quirky number! This one is perfect for the selfie-obsessed generation.

JB

4. Humne Pee Rakhi Hai- Sanam Teri Kasam

Everybody gets drunk with the joy of Holi and to add to the fun, there is bhang- a Holi essential! We are not saying that you should not be afraid of ‘100 Number’ but you should enjoy for sure.

JB

5. Sooraj Dooba- Roy

This peppy number perfectly conveys the party-spirit. Parties are meant to have fun and forget about the real-life problems, right?

6. Afghan Jalebi- Phantom

We wish there was a Gujiya song too but this Jalebi song is no less. It might make you crave for the sweet-treats but at least you will be burning those calories while dancing to this song.

7. Dard Karaara- Dum Laga Ke Haisha

Add a dash of nineties to your Holi with this number. Show some silly old-time moves and dance like there is no tomorrow.

JB

8. Gallan Goodiyan- Dil Dhadakne Do

A party song for the whole family! This one is also great for variation- play it when you are tired to restore your energy.

JB

9. Gulabo- Shaandaar

Splash pink all around while dancing with Alia and Shahid on this one!

JB

10. DJ Waley Babu

We know that this is not a Bollywood song but can you imagine any hip-party without this number by Badshah? We certainly can’t.

JB

11. Nachan Farratey- All Is Well

Pump it up to the dhol and shake your body to the beats. This is a superb song to perk up your spirits.

JB

12. Banno Tera Swagger- Tanu Weds Manu Returns

You will need all the energy in the world to keep up with the pace of this song. Everybody has swag after all!

JB

13. Birthday Bash- Dilliwali Zalim Girlfriend

This song is perfect for not only birthdays but for any party. It will make you dance whether you agree with the lyrics or not.

JB

14. Aj Ki Party- Bajrangi Bhaijaan

Any list referring to Bollywood is incomplete without Salman Khan so here is a funky number for all the party goers.

JB

15. Daddy Mummy- Bhaag Johnny

Let Johnny run away while you groove to this one. We are not sure if you would want your Daddy Mummy to see you though!
