Happy Diwali :)
The festival of lights has arrived.. woo hoo 😀 😀 Diwali is always one of the special day which I always look forward to, only next to my birthday as a kid. Thoughts will be running like from what kind of dress I will get to what kind of new crackers I will burst that year. Being in city(ok.. just near the city 😐 ), from my birth, I always rated Diwali as important festival than Pongal(Farmer’s festival). Its natural for a kid to get attracted towards lights, sound and more sweets and snacks.
The celebration for Diwali always starts a week before itself with mom starts preparing the sweet and snacks with me helping in a very very little way. Dresses will be bought 2 weeks before and I always preferred to stay at home rather than going to shop the clothes. Its a pain to stand for 2 hours just to pick a dress. But I was never ever able to convince my parents and stay at home 😦 Crackers will be bought 3 days prior to the festival. First thing I will do is, searching for the new variants. And then, there will be little fight between me and my bro on how much share we will get out of the available. Everything will be settled before the D-day itself.
On Diwali, mom will prepare some special snacks on that day along with Vada, dosa, Susiyam(a sweet made by dipping mixture of jaggery and long beans in Maida flour and then deep frying it), Chicken or Mutton curry and… chutney. My parents will always allow us to burst crackers only after the pooja. So me will be like the runner in 100 meter run who is eagerly waiting for the words ready, set, go 🙂 And in short bursts I will burst the crackers and in between will catch some programmes and munch the eateries. And at the end of the day there will be a lost feeling and nice memories and also some crackers 😀 😀
Years passed on, with me as a feared kid struggling to hold a small harmless gun to bursting the bijili crackers one by one with great care and then becoming a pro by holding and bursting the crackers in the hand and now just enjoying the night fireworks sitting in the terrace 🙂
But the days are changed now, with crackers completely out of the equation, once favourite TV which is not at all entertaining me, I am busy sleeping for few hours and then munching the foods. This year I don’t think there will be any drastic change in that. Mom already prepared many sweets and in hours will make some more and all I have to do is take bath and munch them.
HAPPY DIWALI WISHES TO ALL YOU FRIENDS…. In this lights festival, let our life become more brighter. Have loads of fun 🙂 🙂
PS: Had a very hectic week, so not able to read many of the posts. And this week is a little long one and I will surely read every post and put comments 🙂 🙂
