Diwali, Diwali!


Hey, guys!

Over here in India, it’s festivity time as Diwali takes over every house and heart. Diwali is a big deal here and it’s like Christmas for us. Not only does it hold a lot of historical and religious value, it’s also that time of the year when the family comes together to celebrate and reconnect. From card parties to fireworks, sweets and pujas, Diwali is a time when you worship and cherish family togetherness and prosperity. I look forward to this day every year when on a no moon day, our country lights up, bejeweled, just like a bride. Diwali starts off with cleaning the house spic and span and then lighting diyas (clay pots) everywhere so as to remove even a single corner of darkness. Houses are lit up in lights, we wear traditional Indian clothes and light up firecrackers after the puja. This day is special to us as we have had many memories of it over the last few years and this year I thought of sharing some snaps of the day with you guys! Enjoy!

The rangoli we made this year was different from all the traditional ones and we were really happy with how colorful it turned out. Really brightened up everything. Rangolis are basically art and patterns made of colored powder.

The house was lit up and every light and candle was turned on to remove any darkness from the house. This is why Diwali is called the festival of lights!

My look for the puja was a no makeup, frills free, traditional look as I wanted to focus more on the puja than on the dressing up.

So, that’s all for my Diwali, it was a great day as always and I can’t wait for next year when I get to be with my entire family again! 

Until next time
