Deepavali 2016

Today festival of lights and the triumph of good over evil is being celebrated as Deepavali festival across Tamil Nadu. Every year I look forward to Deepavali as you get to be with your extended family, burst crackers and eat loads of sweets and savouries without getting chastised by the wife.

In the part of Chennai where we live we are lucky to get Nadaswaram musicians come to every doorstep and play classical songs – for me listening to them play feels auspicious and great way to start the festival day. After they play few songs my mother is generous with her gifts of cash and sweets to them.
