The BCCI uploaded a video of the celebrations on Twitter, and it was a wholesome fun vibe to watch. From captain Rohit Sharma to Virat Kohli, KL Rahul, Ishan Kishan, Suryakumar Yadav, and Ravindra Jadeja, everyone was covered in colors, thanks to Rohit’s enthusiastic leadership.

And if that wasn’t enough, the celebrations continued in the team bus as well, with the players and support staff members alike, including the talented Mohammed Siraj, indulging in the fun. Now that’s how you celebrate Holi in style! Kudos to team India for spreading the festive cheer and giving us all a reason to smile.

10. Agency Masala

Let me tell you, a corporate person on Holi is a sight to behold! They wake up early, not to enjoy the festival but to check their emails and respond to urgent work requests. They try to convince themselves that they will take a break later in the day, but before they know it, it’s already evening, and they’re still glued to their computer screen.

While their friends and family are busy enjoying the festivities and smearing colors on each other, these corporate folks are busy replying to clients and attending virtual meetings. They might try to sneak in a quick snack, but they have to be careful not to get any color on their keyboard.

And if by some miracle, they manage to get away from work for a few hours, they are constantly checking their phones and laptops, just in case something urgent pops up. It’s like they’re never really free, even on a day like Holi.

So, if you see a corporate person on Holi, don’t be surprised if they’re still dressed in formal attire and have a serious look on their face. Even though corporate folks may have to work on Holi, it doesn’t mean they can’t enjoy the festivities in their own way. Every successful campaign we create is like a victory in a game of Holi, and every satisfied client is like a friend we’ve made on this colorful occasion. So, this Holi, we celebrate not just with colors and sweets, but also with the satisfaction of a job well done and the joy of making our clients happy. Agency Masala wishes you all a very Happy and colorful Holi.
