Weekly Image of Life : Create

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!

    1. I just did some research on Diwali. It seems like a wonderful four day festival with the celebration of life, its enjoyment and goodness. I found that each of the four days have their own tale, legend and myth to tell. Wishing you a Happy Diwali.
