Diwali 2012- Realization

There are so many things i've realized this Diwali,
but first of all let me wish all of you a very very happy Diwali, 
I know i'm bit late, i was pondering over my realization as usual:P

Anyways i know everyone must be having loads and loads of fun and gaining pounds and inches by gorging on all the mouth watering sweets, i know i know :P
there is no need to feel guilty about it , we will work it out later but for now let us all enjoy yummy sweets prepared by our mummy dearest, 
while saying so, i'm conscious of the fact  that this is my first Diwali away from my mother my family, my country India
This feeling is terrible, specially for someone like me who is fond of this festival 
not only because i get to eat sweets without feeling guilty *ahem ahem*  i mean that is one of the strong reasons but also because of i get to decorate house(where else can i show my creativity), lighting diyas in every corner of the house, and off-course the Pooja(Prayers)
This time it was my turn to do it all alone, i don't know if i did a fair job or not but one thing is sure  it was nowhere close to  my mother's
but it made me realize that, its tough, i was literally exhausted just by preparing some gulab jamun(Indian sweet) and  namkeen and it left me thinking about all the past Diwalis when my mother prepared so many delicacies all by herself,
she would clean the house, pamper me and my sister, cook dinner yet  look so beautiful and vibrant....
I can never forget those Diwali Vacations when both of us used to have time of our lives- waking up late, then eating ladoos, wearing new clothes and lighting crackers huhhhhhh best days... 
All those days it never occurred to me that Diwali must have been so enervating for my mother, not that we never helped her but still, i can very well understand it now 

So i just want to Thank you Mummy for making this festival joyous for us...
kudos to all the Mothers/Ladies/Aunties who are working relentlessly for making Diwali special for their Children/Husbands/Relatives/Friends

and finally this is how me and M celebrated our very first Diwali....yeyeeee!!!!!!


  1. Happy Diwali! The decorations are beautiful, and I'm sure the sweets would be yummy too. ;)

    It's so true that we don't realize the importance of things until we lose them, right? It definitely would have been different for you, but also, your mom must feel so proud too. :)
    Keep smiling! :)

  2. Thanks Ashna :)
    yaaa its true we tend to take so many things for granted

    Take Care!!!

  3. I am always in awe too thinking how my Mother gets everything at home done at home entirely on he own, after coming home from work.
    Happy Diwali.
    You did well too!

    +To Me It Matters+

  4. @Ashok: Hey thanks for stopping by, wishing you the same....

    @Aprad: I know, they are incredible right,
    thanks yrrr :)
    Happy Diwali to you too!!!

  5. Hope you had a good Diwali.

    I loved the simple Diwali you celebrated. These festivals are about spending some lovely moments with your loved ones, they were never about the grandeur of your celebrations. :)

  6. A very happy Diwali to you & your family dear! I loved the article & I must confess I have put on a kilo but I am happy :) It was a really nice Diwali & I am glad I enjoyed after so longg :) Thanks, for sharing your old memories with us :)

  7. @TS: Totally agree with you, thanks...

    @Tanya: As long as you enjoyed and you are happy, a kg doesn't matter :P

  8. oops/.... did i miss this one?
    belated Diwali wishes...

  9. during diwali the lights come to take away the darkness from our life...good luck...GOD<3U

  10. That is true...
    Thank You Abhi Das!!!!

  11. We always know are mothers are awesome but only after getting married we realise their intensity of awesomeness. We realise that things just don't happen on their own unless we do them....the mess doesn't clean itself, the sweets do not appear out of nowhere ,clothes do not walk to dry cleaners on their own .... there was always a person who was doing all this in the background without any body noticing leave alone thanking them about it!!! They did all the work still managed to be so happy about the crackers,the mess we make in name of rangoli and all our little joys that only left more things to clean up !!! Great post manashree!!! senti hi ho gayi mai toh!!! BTW I spent my diwali with my mom doing the same things all over again :P
