CNN celebrates ... Diwali
Diwali celebration- lights, camera and sweets!!!
- Anika3, CNN iReport producer
I'm not too fond of fire crackers, but I love the festival of Diwali for all the diyas, the colourful tiny bulbs, and all the yummy sweets. This year, like any other, I celebrated Diwali with my family at home (in Mumbai): made different types of sweets, made toran (flower garlands for decoration), rangoli, lighted lot of diyas and put aaltaa (red liquid used to make designs on feet and hands, somewhat like mehendi), performed lakshmi pooja with mom and of course, clicked a lot of pictures. Here is a glimpse of my Diwali 2012 :-)
