Say hello, shutterbug
Fiction, I write
Even though the recent events put a damper on the celebrations, the spirit of Diwali still prevailed. What would Diwali be without fireworks? Pah!
If I had to put up with noise pollution for one night, I wouldn't lose my sleep over it! Well.. I would, but you know what I mean.. LOL !
Happy Diwali man!
You just saw the fireworks? Didnt participate? WHY???
jedi - remind me to avoid YOUR house come firecracker time! lol.
august - same to ya, Emglishman :-)
casablanca - hahaha. didnt buy any this year, casa. haven't done for ages.
I swear I didn't know you were a journalist! And if it's any consolation, almost ALL my friends in India were working Diwali night. (I'd forgotten what it was like working on new years and during festivals.) What all one has to do..
Oh! Finally someone else who enjoyed Monster-in-law! It was such total TP na? And I know -yummy actors ;-)
Belated greetings for Diwali - meant to send egreetings and put up Diwali post et al, but life got in the way and prevented me frm doing it ;-)
This is not my first Diwali in Bombay, but it certainly was my first Diwali on Marine Drive. It's amazing. F***ing amazing. Standing there at Pizzeria, looking up, left, right. Not knowing where to look. Dodging stray sparks that rained this way, and laughing, and going back all the same. It's ridiculous what Mumbaikars will do. It's funny and heartwarming, as well.
Those are the kinds of moments that stay with you. That define a city for you. Bombay by the sea. Crowds laughing, lit up under a stupendous and never-ending array of dazzling light."-
these are the kind of things i have'nt dpnw but i will sumday . spend diwali /new year's night at marine drives
