Happy Diwali everyone ! Have a safe Diwali ! :)
India is in the mode of celebrating its biggest festival of the year, Diwali.. This year it will be celebrated on the 11th of November.. It’s the Festival of Lights and wherever you go you will see everything is lit up around here.. It’s amazing ! The market street near my house is already lit beautifully and so is my house.. We put lights on our windows.. I have always liked celebrating Diwali.. I don’t burst crackers but just the whole idea of wearing traditional clothes and getting dressed up is what I enjoy.. On 11th we will have a small puja at home.. We even light small diyas (oil lamps made of clay) for atleast 5 days during this festival.. Starting from two days before the main Diwali till two days after Diwali. We keep these oil lamps outside our house too, right at the entrance.. It is considered as auspicious..
I will be sharing a picture of the entire market that’s lit near my house.. People from all parts of the city come here only to see these lights.

Happy Diwali in advance !

Thank you all!
Have a great week!
Everyday is different..
Everyday we meet different people..
Sometimes you may feel low..
Sometimes you may feel happy..
Sometimes you may feel unappreciated..
Sometimes you may feel neglected and ignored..
But it’s always best to remember your goal in life..
Don’t let people put you down..
Don’t let people discourage you..
Don’t let people bully you..
When they do, face them, look them in the eye and say..
Excuse me, I have seen way too many silly people like you..

Happy Halloween once again all! :)
India is currently celebrating Navaratri, which is a festival dedicated to the Hindu deity, Durga. The word Navaratri means nine nights, in Sanskrit, nava means nine and ratri means nights. The tenth day is commonly referred to as dussehra. Diwali, the Festival of Lights is celebrated twenty days after dussehra.
The significance being, the beginning of spring and the beginning of autumn are considered to be important junctions of climatic and solar influences. These two periods are taken as sacred opportunities for the worship of the Divine Mother Durga.
Navaratri represents a celebration of the Goddess Amba, (the Power).
In the state of Gujarat and Maharashtra, people perform the dance of garba.. They dress up in traditional and colourful Gujarati clothes and go for the dance.
In north India, there the Navaratri is celebrated in form of Ramlila, which is a dramatic folk re-enactment of the life of Rama, ending up in ten-day battle between Rama and Ravana, as described in the Hindu religious epic, the Ramayana.
On the tenth day dussehra is commemorated in the form of victory of Rama over demon king Ravana, when the actors are taken out in a procession through the city, leading up to a mela ground or town square, where the enactment of the final battle takes place, before giant effigies of Ravana.
