Of Lanterns And Lights

It’s a Diwali tradition in my family to go the week before the festival to buy diyas and lanterns for the house. We visit the brightly-lit Matunga street where hundreds of lanterns hang all lit up and pretty and wander about, taking our time to pick the ones we like.

We invariably end up buying the exact same lantern year after year (we might mix it up a bit and change the colour), but the best part about the annual tradition is to see (and get into) the holiday spirit.

Happy Diwali!
