This week is Holi, on March 18. 

It’s the Indian festival of colors, where we wear white clothes and throw colors (gently) on each other. 

Celebration of spring, new beginnings, love & light.  

My family is getting ready. My mom tried hiding the Indian sweets…

And I’m plotting…

All I can say to my sister is: Watch out! 

This purple powder is comin’ for ya…🤣

📚 Books

Read Festival of Colors by Kabir Sehgal and (my mom) Surishtha Sehgal. I’ve written many books, but this one is by far the best seller…

Spring is here, and it’s almost time for Holi, the Indian Festival of Colors. Siblings Mintoo and Chintoo are busy gathering flowers to make into colorful powders to toss during the festival. And when at last the big day comes, they gather with their friends, family, and neighbors for a vibrant celebration of fresh starts, friendship, forgiveness, and, of course, fun! 


🎵 Music

Listen to Daffodil Girl by Steve Elci. This feel good, family-friendly song is perfect for spring playtime. Steve is an acclaimed singer/songwriter who makes children’s music. Stay tuned for his forthcoming album Nutmegger (he’s from Connecticut, the Nutmeg state). 


📽️ Film

Watch Festival of Colors. This short animation is more than a book trailer. It’s a highly rendered stop-time animation. Animator Natalia Janul designed clay figures of the main characters Chintoo and Mintoo. She moved each character a little and took thousands of still frame, creating the animation effect. A beautiful, introspective aesethetic. Check out that butterfly!
