Happy Holi

Happy Holi!!!! Today is the Hindu festival of colors and Spring - Holi. People all over the country are drenching their friends and family in colored water, music is in the air, and everyone is generally having a great time! We didn't play Holi this time (well, we usually don't); Aaryan played in school so I didn't actually take him out today... Holi is also a time when we have delicious food made at home - sweetmeats, kanji wada (a popular delicacy in Marwari households like ours) and a lovely milkshake called Thandai.

Today is also my parents' wedding anniversary. I haven't yet posted their card here, but I will do it soon. I gave it to them when I went visiting yesterday.
Nothing more for now.
