The Colours of India

A reflection about a controversy which I fail to understand

Celebration of any festival
is not bound by words.
A language is supposed
to be free then only
you will be able to read
real poetry.

We need to grow our heart specially when it comes to language.
To understand the controversy about the advertisement by FabIndia
it’s called
Jashn-e-Riwaaz I had to watch it.

And I found nothing wrong with it.
You can hate me for that. But by using Urdu words you are just intermingling two cultures and isn’t India about that. The advertisement is about homecoming, it’s about the colours of India. It’s about the various festivals of which India is made up of and India is made up of the language Urdu and the festival Eid too. It’s not only Diwali and Holi which is celebrated in India.

If you are searching
religion in a language,
you don’t know
how infinite
the world of words is.
