#KanikaKapoor not only met many bureaucrats & politicians in parties,but also celebrated #Holi in Lucknow a day after her arrival with many people around.

How irresponsible after returning from London.
Singer Kanika Kapoor has tested positive for coronavirus in Lucknow 10 days after flying back from London.

While in Lucknow, I attended a dinner with my son Dushyant & his in-laws. Kanika, who has unfortunately tested positive for #Covid19 was also a guest.

As a matter of abundant caution, my son & I have self-quarantined and we’re taking all necessary precautions.

Holi is known to be the festival of colors. But behind the fun & festivity, there is a interesting story. Many year ago, there was a boastful king Hiranyakashap who commanded on everyone as to worship him only. But his son Prahlad was a true devotee of Lord Vishnu
@LostTemple7
Prahlad refused to worship his father.Hiranyakashyap tried several ways to k!ll his son Prahlad but Lord Vishnu saved him everytime. Finally, he asked his sister, Holika to enter a bl@zing fire with Prahlad in her lap. As Holika had a boon, whereby, she could enter the fire.
Holika then coaxed young Prahlad to sit in her lap and she herself took her seat in a blazing fire. But the then she didn't knew that this boon of getting unscathed would only work when she would go alone.

#KabirSingh is every thing that is wrong with #Bollywood and why a movement like #MeToo or #TimesUp would never get that mileage in India as they received globally! #KabirSinghReview
#thread 👇🏼
#KabirSingh, our hero, is an abusive, misogynist, cringeworthy and overgrown man child whose entire universe works to justify his physical and emotional violence, even against the woman, he supposedly loves!
🤮
#KabirSingh glorifies, even defends, stalking and abuse of all 3 kinds -physical, sexual and emotional- against the main lead. There’s not even one character who looks our abusive man-child “hero” in the eye or stands up to him.

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.

For in a raiment of gold and blue
There shall move on the earth embodied and fair
The living truth of you..."

Want to become a #GoodHindu', but don't know how?
Here is a handy Ten Point Guide on How To Be A #GoodHindu, as devised by the great Shashi Tharoor himself, the ultimate authority doling out certificates of #GoodHinduHood'
# 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!
