Some of the Diwali pictures from yesterday. Chhavi completely went berserk over the crackers, she wanted to light everything herself! Only she has no idea about the danger and Brat 1 and 2 kept running after her. Brat 2 is leaving for Dubai today later in the evening for an internship for 8-9 months. I remember when Brat 1 and 2 were Chhavi’s age and they also used to be equally excited about crackers! They are now on the verge of moving out of the house!
I always took festivals for granted, this was the first Diwali where I realized how lucky we were that all of us were home. I do not do any Pooja but I quite enjoy lighting the candles and bursting a few crackers. It is also for the first time I realized how the pollution level went up within a few hours in the evening on Diwali. Wonder when I will muster the courage to go cracker free.
I am Mridula Dwivedi and I started blogging on 'Travel Tales from India' in June 2005. Within a few months of the launch my travel blog found a mention on both the BBC and The Guardian. I also featured in a National Geographic Skoda Yeti Video.
I quit my job as a professor in May 2015. I am having a blast ever since. I do not miss my work but sometime I do miss my salary! Somewhere along the journey I ended up acquiring a Ph.D. from IIT Kanpur! I now wonder why?
