Diwali lights!!








I am again back to my efforts with the camera. I love this season. The twinkling little lights, the shopping, the sound of music and laughter from every house. I hate the crackers though. But I guess you can't have everything.

The first pic is from my bedroom window, the second from the front balcony. The lights look so pretty and everything has a festive feel to it.

The third pic is my bedroom balcony. I plan to put up some more lights tonight. The fourth picture is the building entrace seen from high up, all lit up. I spent a lot of time hanging over the balcony and watching the lights.

The last pic is from my kitchen window. The lights outside are not too clear but I liked the pic.

Happy Diwali to all. Have fun, guys.

Wishing you and your family a very happy Diwali...I remember in my childhood I was so excited for this festival...use to start busting crackers two week before the festival...and now three days ago I was asking a colleague....when is Diwali..on 1st or 2nd...where has all the fun gone...life has become synonymous with deadlines...one after another....anyway lets forget all this and enjoy the festivities with family and freind
