Lights all over is what Diwali is like! You would love being here in India during this festival...it feels good! So here are some moments of this bright holiday I captured yesterday, especially for you!
We went for crackers and sweets shopping in the evening. The stalls were full of goodies like flowers, candles, different home decoration items. The stalls with sweets were awesome! The lady seller, seeing that I was going to take the picture, wanted to stop me from it, but my mother-in-law explained her I was just capturing it because of my own curiosity. As far as I understood they had a superstition that the shop's success can decline if someone clicks the picture and uses it not in good intentions.
Lit up diyas in front of the Indian Gods. The diyas are then placed around the house to provide prosperity, luck to the family.
The candles we placed outside, and my husband in the background going to lit another cracker :)One of the firewokrs called Flower Pot...such a name!
A piece of our house and the neighbour houses all in lights! It was a great Diwali, the third one I celebrated in a new country and in a new family. I was missing my parents back there, I wish they were with us too this festival season. May be next year :)
P.S. Oh yea, and this is my 100th post and I reached 50 followers! :) Thanks to all for taking interest in my Sunny Indian Days!
