With truckloads of deep fried food items and sweets in front of you, it is difficult to lose weight during festivals like Holi, which is on Friday this year. If you cannot lose weight, at least try not to put on extra pounds, says an expert.
A day assigned for mock battles for his troops by the 10th guru of Sikhs, Guru Gobind Singh, has come to be the symbol of Punjab's own rich religious and cultural tradition. The festival of 'Hola Mohalla', as it is known, takes place this weekend in this Sikh religious town.
In this part of the country, like in most of northern India, Holi comes as a big ticket festival for the lovers of bacchus. So, while there is lot of colour and different hues of 'pichkaris' to play with, the city landscape here is set to get tipsy this Holi on friday, notwithstanding the weather which is set to play truant.
Bright colours, lip-smacking food, foot-tapping music and syrupy gujiyas are some of the first things to pop up in the mind of television actors like Mrunal Jain, Tina Dutta and Jay Soni, who have shared their best and worst memories of the festival of colours ahead of Holi.
