For the last three Diwali, I have been out of India. Although I have celebrated Diwali in Amsterdam too and it has been quite fun yet the Diwali in India is in true sense a festival of light. Kandils, earthen oil lamps, fireworks and the whole atmosphere smells of Diwali. I did enjoyed Diwali there too with the family but this time, I am in India.
I helped mom with making of sweets and decorated the door. Last year I wanted to make Kandil and I ended up making a paper kandil as thermacol (I think that what it is called). This year I made a kandil made of thermacol. During my college days, we use to make 100’s of this before Diwali. This time when I made it, it was not the same as how I would make it but still an OK. I have made it after almost 5 years
The kandil I made. I guess everyone should know what it looks like.
And come to think of it;
Wish you all a Happy Diwali and have a wonderful Diwali!
