Life after Work

Happy Diwali!


Today was India’s festival of lights, Diwali and also the start of the new year for parts of India, including Gujarat, home state of most of our Indian friends. Last Diwalis we have visited Sonal’s store to wish her a happy Diwali and New Year and watch/help Rinku draw a rangoli on the pavement in front of the store. This year Rinku didn’t have time, so no rangoli. Sad! I didn’t feel like going out so I just picked up a new diya (oil lamp) with the head of Ganapati (a.k.a. Lord Ganesha) and headed home. I filled my diya with a wick and wax and lit it and a few more candles in celebration.
