Cleaning the mad house – check.
Diyas and candles all around – check.
Elaborate puja – check.
Cousins who have been witness to our respective juvenile Diwali years in Patna and Ranchi – check.
Elaborate cooking and mad eating – check.
Patakhas – yes. Check. I will go green next year, I promise.
Mad photographing (as opposed to photography of course) – check.
Exhibitionist tendencies displayed on Facebook, again – check.
Diwali is over and I am dead after all the mad shopping, cleaning, and exhiliration of the entire week. Now it is time to sit back, relax, and wait for December and all the festivities that come with it. Hope the year end is turning out as perfect and festive for you as it is for me.
