Diwali with Dada & Dadi

Dada, Dadi and me

I wish you all a Happy and Prosperous Diwali!. This is the festival of lights and I celebrated my first this year with my parents, grand parents and Nanda masi. Diwali marks the victorious return of Vishnu’s avatar Ram from Lanka. It is celebrated a day earlier in South India. Since I am a part of both the North and South, I get to celebrate on both days! My parents thought me too young to light diyas or the crackers so I guess I’ll see them next year? I got sooo many new clothes, lots of kisses and we skipped the “first thing in the morning, before sunrise” oil bath as Pemba Aunty gives me one in any case everyday 😀
