I like the lights, colours, smells and flavours of Diwali much, much more than the sounds, so one of my favourite childhood memories of Diwali are of decorating every inch of our Udaipur home with diyas and flowers from our garden, helping grown-ups make sweets and finally hiding under a quilt with our doggies, just as frightened of the sound of crackers as them :)

Its been 5 years since I have been away from home and havn't celebrated Diwali with family since. My favourite memory is my mother making 'cowdung puppets' for godhan pooja and later dad giving us gifts...good old days...

Rangolis, Flowers, Diyas, mom's mouth watering delicacies, eeting and greeting friends and family, sense of belonging/community, smiling faces of those celebrating the wonderful festival as a family

Play Clan : My toddlers first diwali - We celebrated it at my maternal grandmothers home (an ancestral home). Most of my cousins managed to gather there for Diwali that year (not an easy feat considering all of us reside in diff parts of the country) and it was like reliving our childhood days (except this time, with our kids :)).

I remember when i was very small in my excitement to burst the crackers, i went alone inspite of my mom telling me to wait for her.. and boom the cracker burst in my hands. It was very scary , however that night while bursting everyone was so much pampering me and it turned out to be the best time ever.

my very first diwali back in India after 10 years abroad. i always remember it being about firecrackers, and yet, my favorite diwali moment from childhood is when school kids like me had decided to boycott fireworks because they were made by children and caused pollution. it gave me hope in the strength of this country, and the lights shone all the brighter that night without the smoke to obscure them :) Jai Hind!

Magali Vaz said...

Thank You for this giveaway!
{For Playclan} The lights that make my apartment complex look so beautiful at night, the shops filled with all different kinds of sweets, & the laughter of children everywhere as they celebrate this Diwali are all the things I love about this festival!

Thank you for this beautiful Giveaway and wish you a very Happy Diwali :)

What I love about this festive season:

The festival of lights brings so much with it every year. it fill the surroundings with light of joy and happiness. I love almost everything it has to offer- the yummy sweets, traditional clothes, lightings, cleaning home , making rangolis, but what I love the most is that this is the time you get to spend a beautiful time with family and friends, you meet your old friends who lives out of the town and comes back for festivals. you go to your cousin , relatives and friends houses to give gifts and they come to yours, and in this broken bonds are mend, new bonds are formed and memories are made for lifetime :) I think that is the best part. It brings us together

My Best Diwali memory:

It was in my 1st year of college and I was away in chennai, and had my practicals just 2 days after diwali so I was stuck there and was missing my home in Indore badly :(
Being in hostel and that too far- away I was feeling so alone and sad, Just 3 days before diwali, I got a call from my hostel warden in evening that someone is here to see me. Thinking it must be my local friend I went down only to see the biggest surprise of my life that time, it was my elder brother who gave me a surprise, seeing your family at festive season and being at home when you have no chance is the biggest happiness.
My brother had bought airlines tickets for us and the next day we were at home, fighting for sweets, running around home, making rangoli with mom and best of all we were together as a family on diwali which I thought was impossible. this is my favourite memory among my all diwali memories :)

I like
the flutter it gives to my heart and the smile it brings to my face.
I like
the brightness that the festive lights give to my eyes and the sweetness that the festive sweets give to my tongue.
I like
the moments of celebration it brings for us to be able to experience with friends and family.
I like
the crackle of patakhas and the feel of new clothes.
I like the silent lighting of diyas and well lit houses praying and chanting together the same night
I like it for it comes once a year and is so looked forward to
I like it all....:)
