As far as i know Gulaal means Red, so i thought let me find out what Kesar means since i was having a mango syrup from a tin yesterday and it said Kesar on it, and i thought Mango's dont mean Kesar (well i dont think it does lol)
 
So i looked it up and this found out it means Saffron, kinda a red colour substance...it has a very strong smell...
 
Even their names match up in a way Embarrassed they are meant to be Smile

I'm not 100% sure about their meanings but Gulaal means colour na? And Kesar is used to add flavour/colour right?

But yeh they are both quite similar that way too :P

Gulaal does not means REDLOL...it means dry colors with which we play on HoliTongue...which is also known as AbirTongue. And Kesar means SaffronTongue...whose color is golden orangeTongue.  Though it was weet of you to try to compare their names as oneTongue. But they are totally different...one is consumed and the other is played with. Tongue

First of all iam a die hard Kesar - gulaal fanEmbarrassed and so plzzz dont think that iam against themOuch. But Gulaal is not added to anything for color it is just used for playing or decorating RangoliTongue. And Kesar is saffron which is not just used a s a coloring agent but also as a decoration on food and is also used in Ayurveda for curing certain problems. Tongue. But yes hypothetically both have colorful influence on our lives. LOL

Gulaal, i probably if i had to say the meaning from the top of my head without looking for the defination i would of just said the 'Colour of Red' actual colour and red LOL

But there is a hint of red in them isnt it LOL esp if you try and suss out the definations on the net, look for it Smile

Lennie..In fact Gulaal's name was to be matched with Vasant because it is in this season we see the color bloom...
but then Kesar is also saffron and both Gulaal and Kesar are used for puja ..they are considered to be basic ingredients along with abeer which is white...Big smile ..So they are matched rightBig smile

yup, a season, which is exciting, filled with happiness, but short-lived.Embarrassed

yup, pooja, which is a part of daily life. VERY-long term, something that has been carried through the ages. maybe their love story will be said through the coming eras as well.Embarrassed
