It’s Diwali here in India- the biggest festival! It’s the festival of lights and firecrackers (hopefully not too many of that!). Traditionally , houses would be adorned with plain mud lamps (diyas) lit with oil and wick. In the last few years, the plain diyas had a makeover and were reinvented in the form of beautiful design diyas. Though I still like to light the plain diyas, the designer diyas also look pretty as decorative pieces, especially when painted.
Here are a few painted by my mother-in-law, her sister and myself.
Happy Diwali to all my Indian friends!
