In the past, colors were made from natural materials. The festival of colors was celebrated in a polite and grand manner. Natural colors also provided us with the necessary elements.
But in the current situation, the exact opposite colors are created and the lead is used to make the colors darker and to show the chemical substance and lead. Therefore, the effect is visible on the skin. It can also have a serious effect on the eyes.
Especially children have a tendency to make water lollipops. Mixing colors and water can have a big effect on the eyes. Not only this, with the help of Lola, there is a possibility of redness of eyes, blood clots in the eyes, wounds in the eyes, and tearing of the retina of the eye. If this happens, you should cover your eyes and take them to the eye hospital.
How to protect the eyes?
Do not wear contact lenses:
If you wear contact lenses, do not wear them on the day of color play. If you wear a lens, there is a problem with the color of the lens due to the color. In addition, the inner part of the lens is more likely to be injured by the color of the retina.
Use glasses or sunglasses according to the power of your eyes. Which prevents the color from going straight to the eyes.
Immediately wash your eyes thoroughly with clean water and go to the eye hospital.
The color of the eyebrows, eyelids, cells, and colored glass can stick for a long time. Which should be cleaned with Johnson Baby Shampoo with clean water and a cloth.
All of us from the Achham district has taught us a new way to play Holi. That is a new way – to sing Deuda together. Let’s use natural colors as much as possible and celebrate Holi in a polite and grand manner.
