Diwali Candles

Let there be Light!

Some of the Diwali pictures from yesterday. Chhavi completely went berserk over the crackers, she wanted to light everything herself! Only she has no idea about the danger and Brat 1 and 2 kept running after her. Brat 2 is leaving for Dubai today later in the evening for an internship for 8-9 months. I remember when Brat 1 and 2 were Chhavi’s age and they also used to be equally excited about crackers! They are now on the verge of moving out of the house!

I always took festivals for granted, this was the first Diwali where I realized how lucky we were that all of us were home. I do not do any Pooja but I quite enjoy lighting the candles and bursting a few crackers. It is also for the first time I realized how the pollution level went up within a few hours in the evening on Diwali. Wonder when I will muster the courage to go cracker free.

Lighting diyas and candles is the best part of Diwali, something I missed this year.. am not too fond of crackers, but Samhith is, but since we werent here, it was easy to divert him!! the pollution really gets bad, but even then, guess Delhi is better than Bombay! at least more people light lamps… here it is mostly electric lights, mostly just one ‘kandeel’!

Glad to hear that you had a great Diwali with your cousin. I too am not exactly a ‘pooja’ person but I liked having the diyas lit and all that. What is best is the way my son loves the festival and that excites me too. Nothing like celebrating festive seasons with little ones.

I completely agree Sanand, the little ones make the festivals fun once again!

Nice to read Chhavi had a good time. My best wishes for joy and happiness this Diwali season.

I can’t stand the noise pollution during Diwali (memories of Diwali in Mumbai..argh!), but do enjoy the lighting and feeling of festivity. My favorite part is the lit clay diyas in a row, as it brings back memories of childhood.
