Its been a long time that I wrote a post here.
Life has moved at a great pace. Office is as busy as ever, even more than before as we have got a new project and are busy to complete it in given timelines. I am also preparing for MBA entrance exams so time has been a difficult and precious quantity for me.
Festive season has just gone by leaving me with some of the great times I have had with my family and friends.
Festivals are some of the rare precious moments in our lives when we can meet our family and get together for celebrations. These occasions make us realize what we are really missing in our fast moving lives. The relaxation that we feel when we are home, the joy of meeting our family and cousins and remembering all those childhood memories. I love this season. October and November months are the best months of the year for me as it includes my birthday and so many festivals like Dussehra, Diwali, Durga Puja, Eid.. All these festivals make my festive season.
My favorite festival is Diwali, the festival of lights. I love the Diwali week, there are lots of lights all around you, wherever you go. Lots of lights, diyas (earthen oil lamps), candles and decorations in every home, markets, roads, feels so good, like there can never be darkness. Its a festival celebrated for the return of Lord Ram (hindu deity) to Ayodhya his birthplace and home after an exile of 14 years after conquering the evil King Ravana. There is a Pooja (prayer) during the evening of Lord Ganesha and Goddess Laxmi for the coming year to be full of success and prosperity.
Diwali week in India is just celebrated as Christmas week in many countries.
Lots of sweets are prepared and sent as gifts to all the relative and friends. We also make Rangoli ( colorful patterns on the floor).
The below one is made by me and my sister:
This festive season was really precious for me. I hope it was for everyone. 🙂
