The onset of the Diwali season ..

I love the festive season in Chennai and when it is Diwali the fun is a lot more .. You know Diwali is just around the corner when,


  • People around you are talking about what they have shopped or where to shop for clothes ..

  • When everyone at workplace are planning to go on extended leaves ..

  • When the traffic in Chennai grows manifold just the day after Ayudha pooja..

  • When super markets start stacking boxes of Haldiram sweets, dry fruits and chocloate boxes ..

  • When you are easily able to book tickets for a weekend show in Satyam Cinemas just a day before, most of the janta is shopping anyway ..

  • When the smell of sulphur start setting in the air ..

  • When kids around the place run around with cape guns ..

  • When they take no more orders for stictching in your tailor shop ..

  • When all the ads in the newspaper are that of clothes stores and jewellery shop apart from the exclusive supplements we recieve along with the daily news papers ..

Thank god I am no more in school/ college where my diwali holidays were always followed by some exam :) :)


What are you doing this Diwali ??

.....definitely, miss Diwali in India :) When kids were much younger, they will skip schools, I will take the day off and we will light கம்பி மத்தாப்பு. Now that they don't want to miss school, Diwali is pushed to a weekend - get together in my friend's place :))

Wow!! Totally agree with you. Though I'm really happy to be back home, I think I'm going to miss the awesome Diwali get togethers we used to have at your place. Fun days those were :) Wish you and your family a very happy Diwali.
