txtWeb’s Rang Barse Contest


Spring is here. Spring is here. Thus cries out the heart…..


Yes, it’s that magical time of the year again when the balms of spring touches and caresses every soul, awakening and livening it with the music and colour of the beauty around us – the new leaves on tress, the riotous colours of flowers, the intoxicating breeze, the warm sun, the songs of the birds….the endless dance of nature…


Nowhere perhaps is the revelry more colourful and cheerful than in India, where the advent of spring is heralded by the vibrant colours of Holi.



We, at txtWeb, decided to add to this revelry and bring to our valued patrons the ‘Rang Barse Contest’. We simply ask you – “As you spread colour and cheer on Holi, tell us how you could use your phone to make your celebration more fun”
