Its’ that time of the year, when you can let yourself go footloose and fancy free and dip yourself into festivity. Whether you are the one who waits an entire year to pull out those pichkaris or belong to the tribe that is extremely colour shy, we have got ideas for you to ensure that you have the coolest Holi ever!
Impersonate Your Inner Demons
It takes some guts and a generous dose of humour to dress in the craziest mythological character that you can think of and walk about town. Last year, a friend of mine got dressed as Ravana and celebrated Holi. Needless, to add he attracted attention and smiles everywhere he went. But for me, the thought of someone looking so loony but generating laughter was a funnily the most apt way to celebrate Holi.
Create Your Own Colour Run
How about pumping some action in your Holi festivity? Get some friends together and create your very own colour run. Just earmark an area in your local park or a running-friendly pedestrian and run with your friends while you go on spreading gulal and of course joie-de-vivre in the air.

Bollywood Comes To Town
What better time than Holi, to give expression to your inner Bollywood hero or heroine? Create a Bollywood billboard from your favorite Holi scene in movies as a photo prop. Next, dress in your favourite character. Whether you choose to dress as Amitabh Bachchan from the famous song Rang Barse or would want to channel Deepika Padukone in Balam Pichkari song, just dress the part, play on the music and imagine yourself to be that superstar for a truly uninhibited Holi.

Have A Lights Only Holi Party
Now this one takes the cake because the celebrations here begin towards the dusk when everyone may be retiring for the day. Ask all your gulal and colour shy friends to get together for a unique play-it- with-lights Holi. Get all those crazy head gears with horns and funky light-up hairbands. Put up tiki string lights all along the house and get some accessories like light up tambourines, bracelets and those flashy neon lights for your guests before setting up the dance space with disco lights. The idea is that everyone wears something that blings and parties away in the dark while Holi music plays in the background. And don’t be surprised if no one said that they missed the colours.
Have A Holi Bake Party
Nothing screams festivity more than the sumptuous food. So, for all of those who may be allergic to colours on their skin, how about organizing a party that celebrates colours – but only on the plates. Create a rainbow bake party at home sand unleash the gourmet in you by serving dishes such as the rainbow cake, sprinkles doughnut, panchranga bhajiyas and the cool colourful sherbets ranging from khus to rose. With so much colours and flavors in abundance Holi will be truly relished!
