Real weirdos to over-enthusiastic friends: 5 types of people you'll definitely bump into this Holi

While everybody is busy gearing up for one of the most vibrant festivals of our country, IBNLive brings to you a list of people you’re bound to come across on this colourful day.

It’s that time of the year when ‘Rang barse bheege chunar waali...’ will lead the music charts again, when you’ll not really mind your white teeth shining amidst a multi-coloured face and when you'll be all fine spending some substantial time cleansing all the 'kacha-pakka' colors you were smeared with while playing the festival of colors - Holi. Also, don’t forget it’s the only day when you’re not being judged even if you walk the streets in old rigged torn-off clothes.

While everybody is busy gearing up for one of the most vibrant festivals of our country, IBNLive brings to you a list of people you’re bound to come across on this colourful day. (You may consider some to be a subtle warning, others just an insight into what's coming your way tomorrow).

Rang-me-not peeps


"Please don’t colour us on this colourful day". While these people maybe the ones who party all year round, they suddenly become the touch-me-not type on this one day when it's only about colors. From ‘Doctor ne mana kiya hai’ to ‘I’ve a skin allergy’; their bucket list of excuses is longer than the number of Holi scenes to have ever appeared in our mainstream Bollywood.

Over-enthusiastic go-getters


These are the ones who usually start preparing for the big day almost a week before (or maybe more). From arranging the perfect gulaal to getting their hands on the dirtiest permanent colors; their life’s sorted when Holi is around the corner. From early morning to late evening; you just can't miss their never-die spirit.

With love, from terrace


Now this category of people is a special one; be it for their poky-ness to actually go up to the terrace and throw water balloons at the people who’re apparently having a gala time or just their guts to wish random strangers a Happy Holi at the top of their voices.



Okay, so what’s the thing with either playing a dry Holi or making sure to wet every other person you get your hands on with colored water from a huge tub? Whatever it is, no Holi can pass without coming across an extremist of either league.

No food, no mood


“There’s food? Wait for me.” Every party, every celebration, every festival has some people in attendance who don’t really know what it is about, what’s happening around but are just concerned with the scrumptious, delicious, finger-licking-good food items available at the extravaganza. And needless to say, Holi day can never be complete without gorging on gujjia, pakoras and gulping down bhang.

No matter who you're celebrating this joyous festival with, we wish you a super-colorful, a very happy and definitely a memorable Holi!
