Yeah, yeah, Happy diwali to you all. Let me move on to more exciting stuff. Okay I have too many things to say, so I'm going to bullet point.

  • Illumination: So every year, my colony has this rangoli making competition which according to me, is the prettiest thing I've seen my entire life. It's not your usual simple rangoli, we have 4 blocks and each comes up with themes and then contests. But the spirit of it all reflects it when in the evening the entire colony is lit with candles and there's colour everywhere, there are rangoli forms of every god, you can't not feel connected to your roots. The entire day we spend making our respective blocks look aesthetically pleasing and in the evening we dress up, wish everyone a Happy diwali and move on to sit at home and spend time with family. And, there's a reason why the above lines are cliched :D
  • Sweets on diwali: I hate sweets. Period. And nothing anybody will say, can convince me to try any of the ghee loaded instruments of cholestrol and obesity. So I had my own diwali sweet equivalent yesterday. I treated myself to my most favorite ice-cream flavour in the entire world- Mint chocolate chip from Baskin and Robbins. Plus, I'm not the "happy diwali" kinda person, far away from being religious... but no matter how indifferent I get, I like the feel of diwali. It feels peaceful and positive.... and that is something, coming from me.
  • Small snippets: My sister called me from the US and she said she saw some pictures of me and I've lost "oodles" of weight. These sisters, I tell you :D you're going on perfectly fine, trying to silence your narcissistic side when along comes sister and a rarely seen one, at that, and makes you feel fucking fantastic. And this is a good time for me. This one song has done wonders for me, for some reason. I have evolved. I wouldnt recommend anyone to try it for the reasons I listened to it in the first place, because it's not an inspirational song, but it was personally for me a eureka moment. Try it though, it's fun. Franz Ferdinand- Take me out.

Anyway, on that note... a rather lovely ones at that :) i must remind you that the crackers you burn are at the cost fo young boys' lives. So think before you burn them.. almost makes you a saddist.

Happy diwali!

Mint Chocolate sucks.

S said...

Utopia: well, my diwali was quite silent, if that's any consolation!

v: ofcourse, it sucks for you. Since when did you have taste anyway?

Ram said...

I must have come to the wrong blog. This is all so pleasant.

No wait. Mint chocolate. I have to be at the right place. Only S could have such poor tastes.

Ram: again, how'd you know? You and V don't exactly have the best taste in the world.

Go phish: yayay!!

v said...

You are not exactly the epitome of good taste, so save it.

Ram and I have exquisite taste. As an example, Asin's rain dance song.

S said...

You and Ram should get a room.

v said...

Two of us and Asin in the room? I'd have to decline. I'm sure he'd too. Threesome, not my bowl of soup unless it's two women.

S said...

I thought/knew you wouldn't catch the hint.

v said...

It was too clever of you. Very cryptic. I'm amazed.

S said...

Ofcourse, you're even surprised?

v said...

Pliss to take lessons in sarcasm from your partner Pugsie.
