Diwali, the Festival of Lights

in Celebration, Family & Friends

… is celebrated on October 17th, 2009 that marks a very auspicious festivity in our life. With a whole amount of muscle needed in coping with cleaning, baking, cooking and rituals performed, surprisingly I am still in a very high festivity mood. We ushered in the celebration by adorning new clothes and the house is brightly lit with diya’s all over.

I cooked so many dishes! But no photos, except for one. Sigh. Sorry guys! So occupied getting ready for diwali celebration with friends that I forgot to take some photos. Just one, taken in the afternoon to drool over. I made an Indian version of stir-fry with medley of vegetables. Drool away!

Medley of vegetable sabji !

With a full tummy, good company of friends and Disney fireworks, Diwali was celebrated with thoughts of family’s and friends back home. We miss you all. It gets very tough during festivities. Nonetheless, it was celebrated with loads of blessings and love from every one. Thank you all for showering your love and Diwali greetings via calls, sms, Facebook, Twitter and emails. Can we ever survive without technology? Not us! Come on, give us a break! We are so far away from every one…

Happy Diwali! Hope you had a blast celebrating it with your loved ones.

A fire extinguisher is not an option, but a necessity during this festivities or performing rituals. We do not want to be in the predicament as such. People should learn and practice safe fire etiquette’s. It’s not worth celebrating and mourning at the same time.
