Those among us who are strongly partisan with their religions may find tomorrow a day of consternation. For, tomorrow comes a rare confluence of 3 major festivals of 3 different faiths – Holi, Good Friday, and Fateha Doaz Daham. [Picture above courtesy TT]
It’s something that many say has never happened before. But since all the three are related to lunar calculus – perhaps the only Christian festival to be so linked – this sangam of faiths is not impossible, so say the scientists.
This evening after a sharp squall of thundershower, as the sky reflects the bonfires far and near, I can hear the social workers moving around in autorickshaws exhorting people to keep peace tomorrow.
Meanwhile, tomorrow is also the day when Race, studded with the likes of Saif, Bips, Katrina, Anil, Akshaye, Sameera, is releasing. And to make it big with the weekend heat of the festivities, all the city plexes have lined up ‘endless’ shows of the film.
For example, the newly opened 6-screen South City Fame will have 20 shows of the film tomorrow between 10-15 in the morning and 10-50 in the night.
All in all, tomorrow’s good Friday promises lots of fun and excitement.
