Happy Diwali!

Its Diwali!!!! the biggest Hindu festival. It celebrates the victory of good over evil. It is the festival of lights, though in many places it has deteriorated into bursting a lot of crackers and creating pollution. :(

Anyways, I celebrate Diwali by lighting lamps and making rangoli. It also involves wearing new clothes, doing Lakshmi Pooja and eating loads of sweets :)

Below are the pics of the rangolis I made this year. The first one was a lot of effort and took around 2 hours. The second one was made with a predesigned net and took just 5 mins. Hope you like both! :)

PS (I am out for the week): I know I have been very lax in replying to comments and visiting blogs. I have been really, really busy at work. And currently I am on a vacation to the South of India. I will be back next weekend and will very eagerly reply to comments and visit all the blogs. Please bear with me till then! :)

  15. Happy Diwali too! I am crazy about it!The best part was "eating lots of sweets!" I actually got introduced to Diwali and other celebrations by one of my best friends, who was born in Mumbai. Through her, my love for other celebrations - that was already huge - grew a lot more! I guess you had seen me wearing my favorite items - Indian and in general Asian dresses and skirts! My latest 2 posts showed them, and you will see many more like that! So I can only say, thank you for the wishes and a very happy Diwali too! denisesplanet com

  16. I love Diwali, and I was introduced to it by a very very good friend of mine, who got married to a German, but always celebrates her traditional dates - she was born in Mumbai. So, my love for Asian/Indian celebrations was already big, but grew a lot more after I met her 9 years ago! I hope you have a great week and happy Diwali too!
