Hi everyone!

 

I was away this weekend celebrating Diwali - the festival of lights! Had a good time with family and friends.

 

Nice to be back too. Here's a pic of the decorations in the office space to welcome the festivities.

 

Happy Diwali!

 

Love,

Ashu

Credit for this goes to my friend Alfredo for lending me his macro adaptor.

 

I had a feeling that this was going to be an extremely busy week for me, so maybe I'll just make this a macro week... we'll see.

 

Also, Happy Diwali to all my friends who celebrate it.

Deepavali (also: Depawali, Dipavali, Dewali, Diwali, Divali, Dipotsavi, Dipapratipad ) marks the beginning of the Hindu New Year according to the Lunar Calendar. It literally translated means 'Row of Lights' (from Sanskrit: dipa = lamp / awali = row, line). It celebrates the victory of Goodness over Evil and Light over Darkness - it ushers in the new year. Especially for this event people are cleaning their houses and wear new clothes. Deepavali is a 4 day festival as Deepavali, Lakshmi Puja, Kartika Shuddha Padwa and Yama Dvitiya. There are many different names for the days of Deepavali (or Diwali) in different regions of India (South & North India, East & West India) and in the different languages spoken in that regions (i.e. Hindi, Urdu, Telugu, Tamil, Gujarati, Bengali). During Deepavali people pray to Lakshmi, Goddess of wealth, light, prosperity and wisdom, but also to Ganesha, the 'Remover of Obstacles' and the 'Lord of Beginnings'.

It symbolises the victory of good over evil. Every bit relevant today as it was thousands of years ago.

Wishing all a very Happy Diwali 2014 - The Festival of Lights...

  

Seen here is oil lamps floating in water & the bokeh in the background is created by the chain of LED lights (christmas lights).

 

Diwali also known as Deepavali and the "festival of lights", is an ancient Hindu festival celebrated in autumn every year. The festival spiritually signifies the victory of light over darkness, knowledge over ignorance, good over evil, and hope over despair. Before Diwali night, people clean, renovate and decorate their homes and offices. On Diwali night, Hindus dress up in new clothes or their best outfit, light up diyas (lamps and candles) inside and outside their home & fireworks follow.
