Happy Diwali !!

26 Oct

Wishing all my reader (if any, huh!) a very, very Happy and prosperous Diwali.

For those who don’t know (:-o) Diwali is festival of lights. It’s celebrated in the memory of home-coming of Lord Ram and Goddess Sita. There are other religious beliefs for Diwali celebrations as well. You can read about it in details on Wikipedia. For some, especially the shopkeepers, Diwali is dawn of new year as well.

For those who’ve never been to India, it’s a perfect time to visit this place and live a moment like none other! Till then, take a look at these pictures (shamelessly ripped from various sources), and see the fun we’ve today!
