Happy Diwali!!

Happy (indian) new year everyone!!

Diwali is one of the biggest festival that Hindus celebrate with great enthusiasm and happiness in India. The festival is celebrated for five continuous days, where the third days is celebrated as the main Diwali festival or “Festival of Lights” Different colorful varieties of fireworks are always associated with this festival. On this auspicious day, people light up diyas {top right hand image in the picture above} and candles all around their house. They perform Laxmi Puja in the evening and see divine blessing of the Goddess of Wealth. The festival is never complete without exchange of gifts {I gave everyone a plate filled with Indian sweets and snacks), to all dear ones.

The top left picture is not something i drew, but the two bottom left and right hand corners are the two rangoli’s I drew in front of my house of a Peacock and a Ganesh!!!

Love Love Love!

“Let someone love you just the way you are– as flawed as you might be, as unattractive as you sometimes feel, and as unaccomplished as you think you are. To believe that you must hide all the parts of you that are broken, out of fear that someone else is incapable of loving what is less than perfect, is to believe that sunlight is incapable of entering a broken window and illuminating a dark room”- the things we say

Happy Doodling!!
