Festivities also serve the purpose of breaking the usual cycle of work and give time to rejoice and strengthen bonding with near & dear ones. It gives you time to reflect upon yourself. With so much of hatred and violence spewed upon everywhere around, festivals like this give chance to reflect on our inner self.
What I love the best is the moment when all the ‘diyas’ in the rangoli are lit to spread their glow in the colourful base. This symphony of colour and light is the most satisfying moment of the evening, more satisfying then any cracker… any sweet. Few snapshots from this Diwali.
