Celebrate Holi With Me! Children's book on Holi, Picture book, Festival of Colors

Dol Jatra, Phagwah or Fagu

Call Holi what you may,

Old or young, boy or girl

All together we will play!

I spray my friend with my pichkari,

And smear abeer on his face,

We throw balloons on each other

And many others join the chase.



Celebrate Holi With Me! is available on Amazon and other bookstores near you.

With Me, brilliantly illustrated by Abira Das, I must admit that I want to witness at least one Durga Pujo in my life, in Calcutta."
