A reminder of the glorious art of #Holi through the ages. The Holi mythology has two parts. 1. The perishing of the demoness Holika who came to kill the boy devotee of Vishnu, Prahlad, and was burnt to death instead (seen in the C'Kesava Temple, 13th century)
and 2. the love and frolic of Radha and Krishna, for instance seen here, in a 19th century Pahari painting. Quite a marksman Krishna, this!
Holi was celebrated with aplomb by many Mughal rulers, here, for instance, is the Emperor Jehangir looking like he's having a lot of fun, and perhaps is a bit tipsy too in a miniature painting from the 1800s. Checkout the cool waterguns.

# 10 Ask 'Why do we need another temple? We should build a hospital/orphanage/park/Shopping Mall/Bowling Alley at the disputed site in Ayodhya every time the topic of #RamTemple comes up. But do write glorifying the latest church or mosque that is being built anywhere in India.
# 9 - Chant the #GoodHindu' mantra, 'Terror Has No Religion' each time you hear of an Islamic Terror attack anywhere in the world. Blame poverty, education, trucks, planes, a traumatic childhood, mobile phones...anything but the I word!
