God, Where Are You?

Fri, 03/06/2015 Bangalore, India
Holi is the festival of colours. This is one festival, that from centuries, has been uniting people of all classes, castes, age-groups and generations. Everyone comes together and celebrates the oneness of humanity, and that is the message of Holi. If you leave a group of kids in a room from all different backgrounds (rich, poor, intelligent, not-so-intelligent), do you know how they'll play? They will play without finding any distinction between themselves. They will play together.
Holi is a festival which unites people of diverse backgrounds and professions. Society divides people, sometimes on the basis of profession, sometimes on the basis of gender, sometimes based on age-group. If there is a Chamber of Commerce meeting, only business people go. For the Lions club meeting, only people from the Lion club will go, Rotarians won’t go. So like this, the society has different sections. Holi is a time where we break all the barriers of gender, nationality, race, religion; From the elderly to the young, you hug everybody, and put colours on them. It's a unifying festival; a unifying celebration.
Gurudev, please teach us how to deal with people who use logic for almost everything.
