Asian Scene, 13th March- The Star, Holi Mela at Arya Samaj

13 Mar

The festival of “holi” has a special place in the heart of many and it was wonderful to see it come to life with colors, water guns and a whole lot of fun at the Arya Samaj, Parklands. Carrying a charitable message of giving for the good of things it was not short of that too. The Arya Samaj Youth League has undertaken the building of a borehole and the “Holi Mela” on Sunday 11th March as an excellent opportunity to open up to the community to give generously. The mood was fun and it was cool break in this Nairobi heat to splash colors, poke fun and spread color, love and friendship.

    “the building of a borehole and the “Holi Mela”

    Being from another culture, I’m not clear on what exactly that is.

    Hi, good question- the festival of Holi is to celebrate the humanity among people and not worry about the caste, status, rich or poor and that’s why to give at this time is also good. Thus, Arya Samaj are digging a borehole to kick off their charity year.

      Yes, but what exactly is a “borehole”?

    It is to dig up water from underground.

      Thanks. I suspected it was something along those lines but just wasn’t sure. No greater gift than fresh, potable water for those who little to no access of such.
