To ye and to all, a Happy Diwali!
Celebrations galore. Let there be lights and diyas, firecrackers and sparklers, and delightful, irresistible food. May the good in all of us taste victory over evil temptations, an end to an exile of hardship, pain and oblivion.
It’s that time of the year again. The time when families come together and pray to the Goddess Lakshmi and the Lord Ganesha, for good luck and wealth, to our creator Vishnu, for happiness, and to Indra, for satisfaction. The time when homes, shops and streets glow with lights, hoping that the gods will find their way to our humble abodes. The time when evenings roar with crackers and the sky crackles with mini rockets, and kids jump around dancing sparks from anars and chakris. The time when all our world unites in a bright, loud, happy celebration.
May this festival of lights enlighten our lives!
Welcome to my blog, The Shooting Star. I’ve been called a storyteller, writer, photographer, digital nomad, instagrammer, social entrepreneur, solo traveller, vegan, sustainable tourism consultant and environmentalist. But in my heart, I’m just a girl who believes in the transformative power of travel.
Happy Diwali to you too! I was in India for Diwali once and I remember eating lots of sweets, but are there certain traditional foods that people give/eat during the festival?
Hey, wish you also a very very Happy Diwali! Enjoy Sweety!
happy diwali …
Happy Diwali, Shivya!
Happy Diwali to you too!
To celebrate is life. Light is life. Night too is beautiful that we can sparkle a candle and spread LIGHT in the night.
Happy belated Diwali!!!
@ Discover Unearthed: Thanks. Yeah, sweets are the dominant food during diwali. There’s halwa and all sorts of mithai. My mouth waters even imagining it all. You must try it if you haven’t 🙂
@ Neilina, Sathya Narayan, Dinesh Babu, Ish, Rahul & Amit: Thanks 🙂
@ sulochanosho: Very true 🙂
