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:.
