Diwali

Diya

A Diya (earthen lamp) as Diwali decor

Diwali is officially over, though it doesn’t feel like it — firecrackers are still being burst outside. Though it is meant to be the festival of lights, it has been the festival of noise for a few years now. 🙂 But it still remains one of the most widely celebrated festivals in the extremely diverse India. If there’s a book on festivals of India, a diya (earthen lamp) symbolizing Diwali would make for  an apt cover picture.

Now that would be a thick book… or maybe it would be a series, since that’s the fashion these days! 😉
