Happy Diwali

Happy and safe diwali to one and all..

After bursting the flower pots and chakras, Adi claims to be a firecracker expert. The girl has not seen the other side I say..

LHB was crying very badly till evening but not anymore. He now got used to the cracker bursting sounds all around..

And I made color kolam (Rangoli) at our doorstep after many many years. It took me back to my college days when I used to put those big big kolam in the month of Margazhi every night. Atleast one person crossing the street would enquire about my kolam to amma the next day. Adi picked the colors and helped with the kolam. I feel like re-living my childhood through Adi at India. She comes home and tells me excitingly about the new things she learns that were my favorite on my school days.

Thanks to IMC post by Preethi for the inspiration. It was a last minute plan after reading that post.


I made Gulab Jamun and Ribbon pakoda. Planning to make another batch tomorrow for distribution. I love festivals at India. The happiness all around is so contagious.

Happy and safe diwali to everyone again!
