An hour later….

An hour later, I am reminiscing a typical Diwali morning and sighing and sulking away to glory!!

– Wake up – take a bath with a vigor that never really beats anything – put on ur new dress – look sharp – burst crackers – go to neighbor’s house – burst crackers there coz you are saving up on urs for the night 😀 – Have some khaana at neighbor’s place coz they invited you and Ro and the food just looked yummy [not to mention uve been hungry ever since u been up] – halfway thru the meal, hear Ma yelling out to you – you quickly change the embarassed look and gorge down the dosas provided [coz ya know @ home u got Idlis] – rush back home forgetting to take back sweets from the neighbors – look at mum sheepishly when she asks what we been up2 @ neighbors place – we answer saying havin sum sweets – mum smells the twisted truth and asks where’s the sweets dabba they gave 4 home then – rush back to da neighbor’s place, grab another bite of the yummy vadas and rush back home with the sweet dabba – look at the yummy idlis and sambhar and chutney staring back at ya – sit down on the floor [yeah Diwali days we used to sit on the floor and eat] and gorge on the yummy idlis [My mouth’s watering now]. Finish that off and head out to the temple [most of the diwalis it was the other way round – temple first and then home to have breaky or even @ neighbor’s house].

Drive every1 to the temple, and pray – rush back home and gorge on more idlis. Never was too much of a fan of Diwali sweets :D!! Damn, I am smelling idli n sambhar now *sigh*!! Then have yummy vadas and have that coffee, we Tam Brahms are famous for!! [RIte now I am sipping on microwave heated milk with instant Nescafe to have some sorta food intake before I head to the gym]!!

I miss terribly everything related to Diwali suddenly. This is officially the second time I am missing Diwali in India. The first time was in US. But then again, I had my family to take me thru that!! Living alone during the festivals sucks :(!!
