Celebrations at home….
Me: Today is Diwali
Lil P : Deebali??
Me: Diwali baby.. We will put new-new dress, do puja, put candles (diya), eat lots of sweets..
Lil P : Ohhh happy budday?? we will get cake, put color-color (ribbons) also
Me: No no .. its Diwali. No Cake.. only sweets.
Lil P : My want cake only !!! My don’t like Diwali ( this time she got it right!)
Later, Lil P dressed in an anarkali suit.. wishing everyone ‘Happy Diwali’.. the neighbour’s dog was also not spared!! We did laxmi puja, put up the kandil, painted the thermocol diyas and put them up along the corridor. Lit the oil diyas.. Distributed sweets.. and once PC was back from office lit the crackers also .. ( No sound.. only light show ) …
Summarized in Lil p’s words..
“Today diwali.. My telling all ‘happy diwali’. C baby did not tell. S’s mummy gave Lil P sweets .. My put (R)angoli also.. color color peacock, color color painting candles(diyas). All light. Lakmi (laxmi) is bappa jai jai.. gampati (ganesha) like laddo, lakmi holding lotus in hand. give coin to lil P. My like crackers also. Mummy happy, pappa happy, my very happy also..”
Happy Diwali every one!!

The decorations look wonderful. And Lil P looks very pretty in that dress.
Oh BTW, we too got fire crackers – only light, low smoke and no sound. I hope they ban the noise polluting firecrackers like atom bombs etc soon.
