I celebrated my 10th birthday last Saturday. I invited all my friends to my birthday party. My parents has invited some of our relatives too. In morning, we did some pooja at home and in afternoon the guests began to arrive. I put on my birthday dress which I was specially sewn for me. The house was decorated beautifully by my sister and my mother. In evening, I cut my birthday cake. The cake was very beautiful with colourful icing and big chunks of friends and family members sang birthday song for me and they wished me a very happy birthday. All gave me lots of gift packets . Then my friends and I danced together. The guests were served sweets and drinks. Everybody was in a joyful mood and enjoyed a lot. The guests took dinner and went away midnight. When the party was over, I unpacked all my birthday gifts. I was surprised to see such lovely gifts . I then thanked my parents for holding such a pleasant party to celebrate my birthday.
Sometimes friendship gets broken due to the ego and matter of self-respect. True friendship needs proper understanding, satisfaction, helping nature trust. True friend never exploits but tends to motivate each other to do right things in life. But sometimes the meaning of friendship becomes changed totally due to some fake and fraud friends who always use another one in wrong ways. Some people have tendency to unite as soon as possible but they also tend to terminate their friendship as soon as their interests become fulfilled. It is difficult to say something bad about the friendship but it is true that any careless person gets cheated in friendship. Now a day, it is very hard to find true friends in the crowd of bad and good people but if someone has true friend, no other than him is lucky and precious in the world.
It's a festival of gaiety but then there are few who make this festival, a festival of evil. They do this by infuriating the strangers by forcefully throwing colours on them; some use colours that are difficult to remove and unsafe for skin and health. Many take it as a day of drinking alcohol but we should not forget that Holi is a festival of triumph of good over evil. We must try to wash away all the evils in our hearts along with the colours and allow the colour of love to stay there forever and ever. This is the true spirit of Holi.
