around the corner..
‘So, what’s the program for Diwali ? ‘; the question of the season. With all the hype and shopping ads built around this occasion, my heart has become only stronger and matured to accept the fact that I am going to be working for Diwali. My leave balance has hit such a level that I cannot dare ask for it. Sigh. If you planned to flick another off on Friday, clubbing with Diwali, you got it all wrong babe, the management knew exactly what you were up to and they said, for the goodness of a long weekend, let’s work on Diwali and save the celebration for Friday. There was this huge clean-up mission I have started to work on cause they say, goddess Lakshmi visits your house on Diwali. Well, I didn’t want her to take back her blessings seeing the state my study room was in, so I rather got into the mood to please her, cleaning up the muck myself. It would be fun to back home and celebrate with the whole family. New clothes and sweets and crackers; ohh, the ones with more lights and colors and less sound and smoke I mean. Why smoke up the city with loud bombs when the terrorists are already celebrating Diwali most time of the year. And yea, I am reading Harry Potter and the deathly Hallows(yes, finally) , saving the last few chapters to be read on the eve of Diwali, so the celebration this year would be for the victory of Harry over Voldemort, at least for me. Only joking to keep me forgetful of the fact that I am going to be hitting my key board hard when the whole world would be having fun. Mercy Lord!!
