Up above the world so high…


This was the diwali lantern that we had hung in our home…
Wow! Diwali really makes me feel as if I am on the top of the world!

Here are some of the images of crackers… that decorated the sky as every year, although they are not by my camera.[Courtesy – Google images]

Coming down to earth, it is the specialty of Diwali  that we decorate our floors with Rangoli. It is kind of color powder, bit thicker than powder. We spread it on the ground to form different designs or sceneries or any picture of your choice. In short, the ground is the canvas and we fill color in it with Rangoli!

And of course, how can anyone forget lamps?? Its Diwali, that festivals of Lamps!!

It is really amazing how a small little lamp brightens the surrounding…No sad feeling can prevail here!

This post contains too many exclamation marks isn’t it? But that’s absolutely ok, it’s Diwali post!!!!!!

On one of the Diwali days, we also pray to welcome Goddess Laksmi, goddess of wealth. It is a belief that she enters our house in the evening, around 7 pm, not just on Diwali but daily. So it is expected that we stay cheerful, enthusiastic at least at this point of time as we are, when we welcome other guests.

When I thought of this post, I had planned to write about its history like why it is celebrated, how it is celebrated and all that. But now it seems to be getting too long. So maybe, if I feel like, I will continue to write about the festival in next post! A longer Diwali!!

I hope you had Great Diwali and Thank you all for your wishes! All your wishes together have made my Diwali brighter!

Little something to share


Hello friends!

Post Diwali, there is a kind change happening in me, and I am loving it.

It has been long time, when I must have read a good novel with so much of zeal and enthu. Not just this, but I hadn’t even seen a good Hollywood movie in months. And in this week, I did both! I had started reading this novel, “The Immortals of Meluha” long back. Although I found it very interesting, I couldn’t manage to read it properly, continuously. And now I don’t know what has happened to me, I just feel like finishing off the novel! And I know, tomorrow, by this time I will be done.

Also, I saw an Arnold movie, Eraser. I liked it too!

What more? I have started watching Cartoon Network and my new favourite is “The Oggy and the Cockroaches”. I made few origami birds, a butterfly, a hat, a row of lanterns. And now i am thinking of trying out a new thing i.e. Nail art. I don’t know when i will begin with this craze, but I will soon do it, I at least hope so!

Whats new with you all? Do share it! May be that can be the next new thing I will want to try out!!
