Festival of lights and gifts.
There's always a confusion about dates, for all those who celebrated it yesterday and all those who are celebrating it today, stay safe and eat loads of mithai because the festive season ends here.

Because it's Diwali back home.
The day when I just wish to be home. Nothing more really because this is how it had been since I was a kid. I was always home, always with my parents, brother, relatives and with a lot of unopened gift boxes, sweets, frooties, chocolates, murunde, mithe chaul (sweet rice) and what not. I remember I used to restlessly wait for my relatives (cousins) to come home and give us diwali presents. I was the one who kept going out of the house to see if the car is coming, I was the one who kept praying secretly that please let the next car which comes this side be there's. That's what diwali always meant to me. Always.
Me and my dad always used to decorate the house with lights, we used to try different patterns everytime and when it's time to decorate the new house I am not there. I remember how he would not let me to fix the wires because I may electrocute myself but see, I did all those my self. I had to do it. Because It's DIWALI. This is how it's always been. That's how it will always be. I still feel the trill to go to gurdwara after path so that we can come back early and light up candles around the gates but I am not sure if I'll be able to do it here but I will surely light candles up. I will surely be happy but I will miss you all. Obviously because diwali for me is to be with family, be with them, clean with them, eat with them, open mithai with them, to choose whether to keep that gift or to give it to someone the next time. That's what diwali meant. I miss home. I miss diwali.
Happy diwali. I hope you have a very happy day. :) #aguywithturban#home#instagram#ig_worldclub#diwali#happydiwali#photooftheday#nostalgic#misshome#potd#indianphotography#colorsofindia#indiaclicks#dslrofficial#india_clicks#dpeg#lonelyplanetindia#omgdelhi#delhiwale#diwalibackhome#india#culture#tradition#indianculture#instapic#like4like#recent#passionpassport#postfortheaesthetic#thepeoplescreative
