Welcoming Festival of Lights 2017

I went for an evening walk today, after a long time. Thankfully the world outside has not changed much  ha.ha.ha....

I had a feast for my eyes!! Not just that the trees were looking green and fresh after the recent showers but also because our area was geared up with festive look.

Illumination lights of different designs are hung ready across the road on both sides to get lighten up from diwali eve and they stay for few more days till the celebrations come to an end.

Every year I eagerly look forward to the evening times just to see the various colors of  lampshades (kandhil) and illumination lights that decorates the window of every home. I stand by my window and look at the warmth they throw at me from distance.  Some vanish and reappears ; Some dance to the tune of breeze and some stay still, entertains and gives me company as a silent friend.

I was engrossed in my thoughts as I approached the pavement on the other side, the sudden call of the shop keeper to the passers by inviting them to his shop, distracted me from my thoughts. 

The vendors display the festoons, different variety of diyas, the colorful and vibrant lamp shades called "Khandil" and a variety of lights for illumination outside their commercial premises to get the attention of the onlookers and passers by.

Sharing with you some charming things that captured my eyes.... The pictures may not be very clear (I miss my goold old digital pal) but i tried my level best to share it with you....

What a variety of Diyas!!!

Earthern Lamps have their own charm!

With these distractions I felt that my pace has slowed down but the soul & spirit is lifted high! With the festive feast for eyes filling my heart I walked back towards home increasing my pace..... hearing a slight thundering and occasional lightening... It is going to rain! (you can guess what my next post is going to be!) ;-)

Signing off for today!

Wishing you a very Happy Diwali. 🎉🎊🎆🔅🔯🔅

May this festival of lights brings you prosperity , happiness n good health.

Have a great day!
