this is one festival i await eagerly. my favourite part is watching the fireworks light up the sky in the night. celebrations have already begun around my house. and I’m sure most of you would be starting the celebrations very soon at your houses very soon. so enjoy the week long celebrations along with friends and family. 😀
have a safe and happy diwali.
P.S: The early wishes is because i may not be able to blog that day owing to the work at home and exams will be round the corner. 😉
Navarathri (nava-nine ,rathri-nights) is a festival conducted all over India with the tenth day being vijayadashami. during this 9 day period goddess durga worshiped in various styles based on the location.
In Tamil Nadu the tradition is to arrange a golu in the house. some houses which have the tradition of having the golu for the navarathri arrange the dolls in a steps like arrangement. the dolls may be any thing like the avatars of goddess durga or the forms of vishnu or some thematic scenes.
last week i had been to many golus at various houses and temples. i had taken some pictures of which i’m giving you a glimpse of some.

(the statues which are beautifully arranged in the steps )
( dolls and a chariot arranged to show a temple scene)
A nice place called bedrock… with a nice family called the Flintstones. They are the central characters of this cartoon. their neighbor and best friend is Barney Rubbles. The kind of life they live in the stone age with a tinge of technology (in the form of animals for washing, ironing, electric razor, etc.), is the main theme of this cartoon series which is my all-time favourite :).
The cartoon that started being aired on September 30, 1960 turns 50 today 🙂 It was created by William Hanna and Joseph Barbera.
