Hola Mahalla (also Hola Mohalla or simply Hola) is a Sikh festival which begins on the first day of the lunar month of Chet in the Nanakshahi calendar. It most often falls in March,[1] and sometimes coincides with the Sikh New Year.[2] The festival lasts for a week,[1] and consists of camping out and enjoying various displays of fighting prowess and bravery, followed by kirtan, music, and poetry.[3] For meals, visitors sit on the ground in neat rows called pangats and eat vegetarian Langars provided by volunteers.[4] The festival concludes with a long, military-style procession near Takht Sri Keshgarh Sahib, one of the five most sacred places in Sikhism.[5]

I am dying,

Every day, with ever breath I draw, I am close to the end of my life. For we are born with finite number of breaths, and each one I take edges the sunlight that is my life toward the inevitable dusk.
