Really Random Tuesdays #7

Hello my friends, I hope you had a great last week, for us it was Diwali time – festival of lights – the triumph of of gppd over evil – the triumph that light of knowledge has over darkeness.

All through the year, just like other festivals, we wait for this one – where we light up the houses with Diyas (lamps) and sounds of crackers goes on and on for 2-3 days at least. It is nice, to see everyone, everyplace decked up at nights, with beautiful lights, lamps and such. But 2 weeks back, husband’s Grandmom died and we do not really celebrate any festival for one year, so we did not do fire crackers this year, but we did put up Diyas and did Poojas.  It was wonderful, but rainy too. 🙁

So festivities really means n much reading :o)

Here are some pics,

Aarya in Ethnic wear. :o) .. We decided to go the Dhothi way!

That is Aarya in his Dhoti, LOL! We bought this dress for his Rice eating ceremony, but then as the ceremony is postponed, we decided to make him wear it for Diwali instead. I will definitely write a post explaining about the Rice Eating ceremony later :o)

Aarya and me (2nd from left) watching the firecrackers surrounded by our neighbors. Aarya is hidden, he is on my lap. Everyone is trying to see his reaction to the firecrackers.

 

View of our home from outside. That’s me and Aarya :o)

Other than this there is nothing else to really update you guys. I hope you guys have a wonderful week ahead! And I hope this coming year brings loads of happiness, and the light of love and happiness in to your little worlds.

This is yet another installment of Really Random Tuesdays hosted by a very beautiful  blogger, Suko. Really Random Tuesday is a way to post odds and ends–announcements, musings, quotes, photos–any blogging and book-related things you can think of.

  1. I’m glad you all had a wonderful Diwali! The pics are great and Aarya looks adorable as always! I’d love to watch the firecrackers if given a chance since I haven’t witness any in my life as the government bans firecrackers here.

  2. Hey! Looks like you and Aarya had a wonderful time this Diwali. Aarya is looking very, very cute in that dhoti outfit. 🙂

  3. I think last year was the first year that I was aware of Diwali but it sounds like such an amazing festival. I’m glad you guys could celebrate a little despite everything else going on. And yes, please tell us about the rice ceremony!

  4. Aarya looks very handsome in his special outfit. I’ve already said this, but he seems to get cuter and cuter by the day!

    Thanks for sharing some Diwali photos, too. I love the concept or idea behind this special festival of lights. I’d also like to hear more about the rice eating ceremony.

    Have a great week, and thanks very much for doing this meme, Veens.

  5. One of the things I’m loving about blogging is getting to meet people that teach me about things I didn’t know about. Thanks so much for sharing! And may I just say that Aarya is absolutely getting cuter by the day!

  6. Aarya is going to have to fight the girls off, he is so beautiful! I love his outfit and can’t wait to hear about the rice eating ceremony.

  7. Aw, Aarya is so cute! I feel like I say that every time I see him, but it’s just so true I can’t resist. 🙂 I can’t wait to hear about the rice eating ceremony soon.

I love to hear your thoughts!
