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 started my India travel blog, Travel Tales from India in 2005. In 2016 I realized Travel Tales from India and Abroad better reflected my writings. I love to walk and ride in metros around the world. I have not been everywhere, I am not even close, but it is on my list. I also quit my job as a professor in 2015, it was a happening year! I did a Ph.D. from IIT Kanpur ages ago!
