There are so many great celebrations and traditions in India. If I had to only select one, I might pick Holi to share with Americans. It encompasses all of what my family and I love about this great country – getting together with friends and families, having fun together, and giving back to one another. My family and I had the pleasure of spending Holi with Indian friends of ours in a Delhi neighborhood and then we hosted at Roosevelt House 32 kids from a local settlement. The kids are enrolled in an English language program that was started by my wife Sally and are being taught by many volunteers from the American Embassy School. Colors were “shared” with everyone so that by the end of the day we were all “colored” in purple, green, yellow, and red colors from head to toe!
I attended the concert, Rock ‘n India, with my two daughters last night in Delhi. Two American groups, Richard Marx and Backstreet Boys, were the main attractions for a tour that started in Japan and next travels south to Bangalore. The Indian audience was loudly appreciative and thoroughly enjoying the performances, while still extremely polite and almost respectful after each song. The night was near perfect for the outdoor concert, with the bright moon and shining stars adding to the atmosphere.
