Diwali Dhamaka!

Diwali is here!

Ok, there’s still about a week for Diwali to arrive….but as I said…the festive mood is setting in. This is undoubtedly the liveliest time of the year…for everyone! You get so many gifts. (He He He!)
We got our Diwali gift from office too…..yay!!!!

I think more than anything, it’s the family get-togethers that excite me. This is the time of the year when our HUGE family meets up…everyone.
And if I tell you how many people there are in my family….you’ll probably boycott us on charges of increasing the population!
Imagine what it would be like having all of them together!.....yayyyyy….I am excited!!!

There’s one more thing I absolutely love doing on Diwali. Lighting diyas!
I think no electric lighting can match the charm of putting diyas all around your house. They are just so beautiful!

And I also make Rangoli every year. And pretty ones mind you : )

All these small things make this festival so special and joyous. At least for me. I am sure all of you are going to enjoy it as much!

Wish you all a very very Happy Diwali!!!

P.S. Please don’t burst crackers. Diwali is a lot more than smoke and noise.

hey Aastha.. Happy Diwali girl!.. i too am passionate about Diwali the way u are.. my excitement was all ova the place coz we got our Diwali gifts from office too - ipods (www.ipodyourlife.co.in/make_it.aspx)
pretty cool eh !?! but i kinda beg to differ on ur opinion on bursting crackers.. i'm sure u know the reason we celebrate Diwali.. then no fireworks, totally kills tradition... i perfectly understand where u comin 4rm... but there are more serious levels of pollution happening every other day all thru out the year, not just for 3 days.. u'd be better off requesting readers to turn off their vehicles at long signal waits :)

Happy Diwali to you too!

I do agree with you, but then bursting firecrackers for the sake of tradition and bursting crackers all through the night are two different things.

Someone has to make the first move, that's how changes come. As for the turning off the vehicles idea...probably not here on my blog but we do it all the time otherwise...good idea to do it on my blog too... thanks! :)
