The new bride & Holi

A bright splash of yellow on the face,

The vermilion & purple, struggling to keep pace.

Eyes that are filled with mischief and joy;

The lips that smile, tentative and coy.


Oh! What a wondrous picture they evoke

Of a new bride that festive Holi does provoke.

Tantalizing her to come out and play,

To not spend time in the kitchen that day.


Shyly she hides behind the potted plant,

Trying to avoid her Mother-in law’s rant.

She spies her husband near a colorful mound

Oh Lord! She sighs, don’t entice; turn me around.

About Sonal Singh

I believe that life is a repertoire of anecdotes. The various situations that we encounter, the many incidents of every day, the people we meet, our conversations with them; all make life a melange of tales. And, that is what I attempt to capture through my writing. My cooking is no different! It reflects my love for travel and my love for innovation. The kitchen is my happy place. So, even though by vocation I am a recruiter (, by passion I am a writer, home chef and a hodophile.
