Here’s wishing you a Holi filled with sweet moments and colourful memories to cherish forever.
And Here’s a Riddle on Colours too!
There are seven parts to this riddle,
Each is part of a greater whole.
You see most of these,
Everyday as you please:
First is what I did to a book yesterday,
Second mixes with apples.
Third is a shout, then “ouch” you say,
Fourth shares the sound of mean.
Fifth is what the wind had done,
The sixth is often skipped.
The last and final can be called by two names,
If roses are this, then which is the blue one?

Holi, the Hindu festival of colours, that marks the advent of spring and signifies the victory of good over evil, is celebrated by throwing coloured power and splashing water at people that often contain chemical dyes which can be harmful to the skin.
Holi is associated with the killing of Holika, the sister of demon king Hiranyakashipu. This year Holi will be celebrated on 23 March.
Tips For a Safe Holi
1. Celebrate Holi with natural home-made colours to avoid damage to skin.

1. Cook two pizzas at once
Before putting your pizzas in the oven, just cut them in half. You won’t have to cook them separately anymore.
2. Keep your ice cream soft
To prevent ice cream from hardening in the freezer, put it in a sealable plastic bag. Now no spoon will be bent because of a hard-as-a-rock dessert.
3. Eat leftover Nutella properly
Instead of throwing away an almost-empty jar with delicious chocolate spread leftovers, put some ice cream in. A cool dessert is ready!
4. Pour milk into an empty cookie packet section
If the cookie’s too large to fit in a glass of milk, pour it in…a cookie packet!
5. Heat two food portions in the microwave at once
Put the second bowl on a mug or glass, heat, and enjoy.
6. Make cupcake sandwiches
Try cutting a cupcake in half and making a sandwich out of it. There will be less chance of getting frosting all over yourself, and it tastes so much better. (In fact, that’s the actual way of eating a cupcake)
7. Dip cookies in milk using a fork
This trick works better with sandwich cookies, like Oreo.
8. Easily open half-cracked pistachios
Take a hard-to-open pistachio and wedge a broken shell half from another nut into a crack — the pistachio’s open! And no nails are harmed.
9. Easily peel mangoes
All we need is a glass and some sleight of hand. You can see here how the real professionals do it.
10. Use a strainer to get rid of dust crumbs in cereals, muesli, and other instant breakfasts
Pour cereals into a strainer and sift to separate flakes from crumbs.
11. Dip cookies in milk and freeze
If you dip cookies in milk and put them in the freezer for several hours, you’ll get an incredibly delicious dessert.
12. Put an elastic band on a Chinese food box
Now the box’s top won’t prevent you from enjoying your favourite food.
13. Easily cope with a hard-to-open jar
If you cannot unscrew the lid, use a spoon or a can opener. Insert a spoon between the lid and the glass as shown in the picture. As soon as you let the air into the jar, it’ll open easily.
14. Bake eggs in their shells
Boiling is not the only way to cook eggs — you can also bake them. Baked eggs are considered to be more tender, though this way of cooking takes more time: from 25 to 30 minutes at 160°С (320°F).
