    CNN celebrates ... Diwali

    1st Diwali Bangalore, 2011

    I captured this photo as my friends niece was running away from the crackers. It reminded me of the photos shot for life magazine back in the 60's. As a parent, could feel both the thrill and the fear of the children and adults as they ran to set off and watch the crackers. I truly loved this time in India where families opened their doors to their neighbors and cooperated in making beautiful designs with colored sand. I was proud to wear a sari and eat the traditionally food with the locals. I wish I was in India this year celebrating again. It was an amazing time.
