Diwali, the festival of lights

Yay! It’s Diwali :)

Being in Toronto, the ‘yay’ part is missing. I’m carrying some sweets to work today and educate my colleagues there. There is also going to be a little celebration at school. And on the weekend I’m going to some place to watch fireworks – the real thing :)

इवल्याशा पणतीने
दूर पळतो अंधार;
लढणार्‍या माणसाला
देते शुभेच्छा आधार.
.:दिवाळीच्या हार्दिक शुभेच्छा:.

    घरापासून लांब तुझी ही पहिलीच् दिवाळी आहे ना? मी समजू शकते! पण तिथे बरेच् भारतिय आहेत असं तू म्हणाला होतास. मला खात्री आहे की आमच्या पेक्षा तुच् दिवाळीचा जास्त आनंद घेशील. बर्याच् दिवसांनी इथे आलीये. अभिनंदन, व शुभ दिपावली :)

    Can’t type in Devnagari from office, and I hate Romanized Marathi, so, Thanks for your wishes and I will have fun for sure.

    Mark:

  3. Have a happy and safe diwali… I am looking forward to a ‘bright’ diwali as well ’cause Geaorgia state has lifted ban on firecrackers (or thats what I hear)…. anyway, enjoy!!

    hahaha, Since I care about you and don’t want to get you addicted to Indian sweets, I’ll try bringing it next week.

    Oemar:
    Firecrackers? cool! Happy Diwali to you too.
