The nation will be celebrating the festival of colours, Holi, tomorrow. The Hindu festival marks the end of winter and welcomes the spring season. On this day, people play with colours with each other. Many kinds of special dishes including sweets are prepared for the celebration. Celebrities also celebrate Holi with full joy and enthusiasm.
Abir Chatterjee, Jisshu Sengupta, Raj Chakraborty and many actors remember their experiences of this festival.
Abir Chatterjee says four years back I had bhang and felt like I was floating. “I was feeling light and ate like anything. And I kept lunging to catch them. It was fun moment. And I also remember that after playing Holi I slept for hours,” he added.
Jisshu Sengupta said that he had bhang at the age of 10. “I drank 12 glasses of water and I immediately went to sleep. My father never liked bhang and playing colours. Once in college, my friends and I had consumed bhang and when we came back home, we were only laughing,’ Jisshu said.
Raj Chakraborty said that I had four-five glasses bhang and I lost control. “I kept on dancing and even cannot walk. I would fall and stood in that position for a few hours,” he added.
Rudranil Ghosh remembers bhang trip. He said that after having bhang I kept on saying soyabean curry as mutton curry. I even felt that my bed was hanging in the air. Bhang made me forget all my stress.
Srijit Mukherji remembers his JNU days. “We used to make bottles bhang during Holi. Once I had bhang I felt as if I was in a spaceship. My friends kept on saying that I was just under the effect of bhang,” he added.
