Diwali festivities!

The festive season has set in. We love the months of September, October and November as a lot of festivals are celebrated during this time of the year.

For me, festivals are a way to remind us to be happy and celebrate the richness of life!

The Diwali festivities have set in, preparing for the main festival to be celebrated on October 23.
All type of Diwali decoration can be seen around in the markets: beautifully decorated diyas (lamps), akashdiwa’s (lanterns), decorative lighting, rangolis etc. Many of the malls and shops have been beautifully decorated too.


Here is a glimpse into the festive atmosphere in Mumbai…..

Diyas (lamps) galore for the festival of lights!
Richly decorated diyas...tempted to pick up more and more!
Colorful akashdiwas (lanterns) in varied hues...

Let us celebrate, good over evil! Happy Diwali !!
