Do you know why Justice Katju is not celebrating Holi?

SATYAM BRUYAT - Justice Katju

By Justice Markandey Katju

Happy Holi to you all.

Forgive me, but I will not be celebrating it with you.

The Holi which I can play is only when India emerges from its present condition of massive poverty, malnutrition, unemployment, inflation, lack of healthcare, casteism and communalism, etc and becomes a prosperous country with all its people enjoying a high standard of living and leading decent lives.

But that mighty historical transformation will probably be after 15-20 years from now, long after I am gone ( since I am already 77 ). So it is unlikely I will ever play Holi with you.

So enjoy your Holi. But please don’t ask me to join you.

When my Holi happens, I will not be with you, but I will throw gulaal and rose petals on you from the sky.
