In Darkness A Light

Sometimes I feel that Diwali is absolutely overrated. And at other times I feel that Diwali is the purpose behind everything else happening throughout the year. As if I celebrate other festivals only so that they can lead me to Diwali. The thought of it is a bliss!

 Diwali is a lot of hard work as well. It calls for cleaning, decorations, a lot of shopping and even more cooking. This Diwali there was just too much going on, I had dozens of things on my mind. I even felt as if I was just rushing from one thing to another.

Then in the evening, I lit up the very first diya and I felt the frenzy inside me going away. The light brought warmth and it brought calm. Now that I had this twinkling lamp in my hand, every ‘up and down the hill’ effort that I did throughout the day was worth it.

And it definitely felt special that I was sharing that moment with Mr B and Little B.

Here are some sights from my festival of lights –
