India Trip, Day 30: aftermath

November 12 (Mon) - Day 30:  aftermath

Diwali Day # 2.  It is Chhoti Diwali today.

A simple puja of diya and God is done today, a FEW crackers are burst (note sarcasm), and the women from the neighborhood visit each other's place to wish others and take blessings from the elders.  I went along with the neighborhood 'bhabhis'.  Saw a lot of small beautiful rangolis outside some homes.  I remember, 15 years back my mamijis in my nanihaal used to make gorgeous large scale rangoli on the verandah with a different theme every Diwali, not sure if they still do.

But some homes cannot afford to put  rangolis OUTSIDE their houses, because this is what people do to the roads after the whole day of playing with fire crackers...
