1. The Aftermaths of Having Fun

An NYU student’s experience of playing Holi (The Indian Festival Of Colours). Excerpt:

I remembered the tasteful pastel streaks and megawatt smiles of the Facebook Colour Runners and contrasted those images with my own practically orange complexion. Apart from my eyelids and lips, every inch of my face looked like a four-year-old had gone to town on it with a paint roller and vats of Sherwin-Williams. Alternatively, I looked like I’d been thrown into a blender.
