Do you also feel anxious besides being happy on the occasions of festivals?Tomorrow is Holi when Holika Dahan will be celebrated followed by playing of colours etc., the next day. This is one of the major festivals of north India and is celebrated with much gusto and fanfare. The normal life of the people becomes sort of paralysed as the revelers almost seize the city by indulging themselves in merry making. Many of them drink heavily and resort to unruly behaviour.
To be candid, I always feel anxious in anticipation of some unfortunate incidents on such occasions. Generally, by evening we start hearing about unpleasant events in television. Next day in the morning, we find news about few mishaps in the local newspapers. Often road accidents take place due to drunken driving and skirmishes also occur due to hooliganism.
The same thing happen on the occasion of Diwali and New Year also when we have no other option but to wait anxiously to hear unpleasant news about occurrence of fire accidents and people getting injured due to fire crackers etc.
