    Simply Diwali


    Diwali is the festival of lights! I have not celebrated Diwali in India or with family for over 10 years...This year, I was lucky to have one of my sisters with me, who created a simple and beautiful depiction of Diwali.


    Over the years Diwali has becomed very commercialized with sweets, fireworks, sales, etc., like any other holiday in any other part of the world. However, as shared with many others on Twitter and Facebook this year, more than ever, there was an increasing sense of frustration and discomfort to the noise and air pollution caused.


    Hence, the simplicity of the celebration with family and the lighting of candles! Happy Diwali!
