Happy Diwali

Week 3 of 52
I decided to talk a walk in the neighborhood and shoot some photos for week 3 of project 52 and here are some photos shot during the walk. 

Diwali is around the corner, for Hindu's Diwali is one of the most important festivals of the year. Its a festival of lights, triumph of light over darkness, triumph of good over evil. Streets are bursting with life and colors, everyone is shopping for the festival buying new cloths, lanterns and fireworks. 

It's a tradition to light a lamp and hang colorful lanterns and you can find shops selling these colorful lanterns. 

 its flowers everywhere, its time for the flower vendors to cash in 

Lights and decorations everywhere

Most of the shops have attractive offers and have their products on diplay

 After a day full of shopping, its time to spend some time together as a family and have some fun.


its dinner time, nothing like hot parata's with some spicy curry ;)

Hope you all enjoyed the photos.  See you all next week with new set of photos.  Happy Diwali to you all.
