happy diwali - and what are you eating?

i sooooo miss being back home, especially since with a little planning i could have made it back for diwali.

i miss the pre-dawn bath, the rangoli everywhere, the divas at night. i miss eating the sakharpoli and all the ladoos and all the wonderful sweets we'd swap with our neighbours.

i miss visiting offices with my dad and getting a nice fat envelope of cash - only for books, he'd warn. i miss the all night card game, i especially miss bhau bheez - when the girls come and perform aarti for their brothers.

i miss diwali.
