A Colour-full post…

A lot has changed, in recent times,in the way festivals are being celebrated in India.People are socially and environmentally becoming more and more aware.On Diwali,I saw a lot of people calling for a noise-free and no-crackers Diwali.A lot of my FB friends went ahead and did just that.Diwali ,sans the noise and pollution, but with all the festive elements including diyas and lights and lovely decor and mithai.
With Holi round the corner,I find many of my friends taking an initiative and persuading people to play a dry holi this year ,keeping in mind the droughts that have affected many of the states in India.Makes sense!Why waste water when there are other ways of enjoying a festival?So play Holi with gulaal(dry colours) and flowers.Have lots of gujiyas.Visit your friends and relatives.That’s what festivals are for.Enjoying,merry making,laughing and spending time with family and friends.Wastage of valuable resources should be avoided at all costs. Future generations would thank us for this thoughtfulness and giving a new meaning to the festivities.Holi is a festival of colours .Lets bring a lot of colour into our lives and our homes,too, this season.
Like I jazzed up my Living room with these amazing cushions from Zansaar.

Though the kids have taken out their squirts from last year,they will be allowed only a  single bucket of water to play with and no more.

And this is how colourful the markets looked loaded with varieties of fancy squirts…

Have a colourful and happy Holi.And Do Save Water!

Deep Jalao…Aayee Diwali re..

Its festival time yet again…and this one happens to be my favourite.I love lights,candles,diyas and lots of shopping.Everyone makes that extra effort to clean up the house before Diwali and lots of new things are bought.Except for the loud crackers,the festival of Diwali brings a smile to my face as I think up new ways of decorating the corners of the house,cleaning up long forgotten niches and cooking up festive delicacies.

This is how the house looks like this year..

That’s my daughter’s little home…how do you like it?I wish this diwali lights up your homes as well as hearts.

Wish all of you a happy and prosperous Diwali!
