Happy Diwali

Deepavali chya Shubechha!


A friend of mine sent this lovely verse in an email last year:

Pahila diva aaj lage dari
Sukhache kiran yei ghari
Purna howot tumchya sarva ichha
Tumha sarvanna deepavali chya hardik shubhechya!


Today is Dhanatroyadashi and as I look back, nothing much has changed since this day last year. I did eventually make sanzori but it took me almost a whole year to get to it. We lit a diya by the door and all the lights in the house were turned on. It is getting close to the time to turn them off again and then make chivda, which I had perfected last year.


I hope your Diwali is as wonderful as mine has been and will be! Happy Diwali to you, your friends and your families!
