but first of all let me wish all of you a very very happy Diwali,
I know i'm bit late, i was pondering over my realization as usual:P
Anyways i know everyone must be having loads and loads of fun and gaining pounds and inches by gorging on all the mouth watering sweets, i know i know :P
there is no need to feel guilty about it , we will work it out later but for now let us all enjoy yummy sweets prepared by our mummy dearest,
while saying so, i'm conscious of the fact that this is my first Diwali away from my mother my family, my country India
This feeling is terrible, specially for someone like me who is fond of this festival
not only because i get to eat sweets without feeling guilty *ahem ahem* i mean that is one of the strong reasons but also because of i get to decorate house(where else can i show my creativity), lighting diyas in every corner of the house, and off-course the Pooja(Prayers)
This time it was my turn to do it all alone, i don't know if i did a fair job or not but one thing is sure it was nowhere close to my mother's
but it made me realize that, its tough, i was literally exhausted just by preparing some gulab jamun(Indian sweet) and namkeen and it left me thinking about all the past Diwalis when my mother prepared so many delicacies all by herself,
she would clean the house, pamper me and my sister, cook dinner yet look so beautiful and vibrant....
I can never forget those Diwali Vacations when both of us used to have time of our lives- waking up late, then eating ladoos, wearing new clothes and lighting crackers huhhhhhh best days...
All those days it never occurred to me that Diwali must have been so enervating for my mother, not that we never helped her but still, i can very well understand it now
So i just want to Thank you Mummy for making this festival joyous for us...
kudos to all the Mothers/Ladies/Aunties who are working relentlessly for making Diwali special for their Children/Husbands/Relatives/Friends
and finally this is how me and M celebrated our very first Diwali....yeyeeee!!!!!!
