Happy Diwali

Diwali - the festival of lights. A bit late though to post this pic, since the festival was around 10 days ago. Its a time when you see lights all around - all houses decorated and lit-up. A time for sweets and I love to hog on them. Also a time for crackers all around - though I'm not a big fan. Traditionally, there were clay lamps (we call them "diyas" in India) in all homes,  but modern times have brought new concepts like floating candles, and they look good :-)
