Really Random Tuesdays #7

November 9, 2010 0 By admin

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.
