Festival of lights also have plenty of colors !
Diwali holds a special place in my heart as it meant I could meet my friends and relatives who were parted in pursuit of better careers or education.
One of the most celebrated festivals of India, Diwali makes a significant part of Indian culture. Major migration of people happen since people mostly settled in cities return to their villages to celebrate this with their parents.
Homes are cleaned, painted and decorated with lights and traditional indian lamps known as "Diyas", which makes it quite a site to be seen.
Diwali also witnesses a huge shopping spree as many people considers days leading to Diwali auspicious for buying. It makes almost all businesses to come up with special discounts and special offers.
Different religions have different history beind why it's celebrated. Hindus celebrate it to mark homecoming of Lord Ram after 14 long years. Jains celebrate it to mark Nirvana of Lord Mahavir, Sikhs celebrate it as Bandi Chhor celebrating release of Guru Hargobind Singh Ji from mughal captivity, and few Buddhists worship Goddess Lakshmi.
Depicted here are "Rangolis" which are mostly drawn by women with colors and flowers, which adds to Diwali decor.
Wish you a very Happy Diwali everyone !
This is my tired, drained, snorting -where-the-hell-is-the-top-of-this-mountain hike face 🤣🤣 not elegant and lady like in the slightest but authentic and real. .
As much as I like and follow a lot of accounts with pretty pictures and girls in dresses on top of mountains or other improbable places I think that from time to time we need a reality check and share some unedited, unfiltered, make up free, totally sweaty shots as well to remind ourselves we are human, raw, real but still beautiful and shiny like a freakin' supernova 🎆🎇
Went for print on print and totally cotton for the yesterday's Diwali outfit.
Really a good option in this heat yet festive enough. 👌😉
P.s. both the Kurti and handmade Bag are from a stall in The Maharashtra Vyapar Peth, currently on in Dadar.
