Happy Diwali to all of Mirch Masala’s readers who celebrate this festival of lights. Diwali, as you may have read in previous posts, has a very special place in me and there are so many fond memories associated with this as with any other festivals. Here in Seattle, thousands of miles away from family, we try to recreate as much of what we can of this festival, to still feel warm and happy. We still miss our family back home very much.
I have especially been trying to make sure we do not missing out on any festivals, especially for V’s sake. I want him to grow up seeing all this as a part of his day to day life. How much of that he will take forward in his life is up to him.
These probably are some of the worst pictures I have taken so far. I used to get nice shots near this window which has translucent blinds on it. But lately, a couple of pictures I have taken there have distinct weird shadows and over exposed portions to it. I am definitely missing something here and doing something terribly wrong. I need to figure out and fix it.
Ok, that rant is over.
A last laddoo post for this diwali before Diwali sets in on Thursday. Parts of the world are already celebrating Diwali on Wednesday but I fall under the category of those who are celebrating it on Thursday because I thought it was Thursday and have planned my Diwali party around it. So, there you go!
Happy Diwali for all those who celebrate this festival of lights. May the warmth surround you and protect you from all evil and guide you to your destinations. Read More
