Diwali 2008

Wish you all a very happy diwali. We celebrated diwali as usual with traditional legiyam, sweets, savouries, new dresses and last but not the least - the crackers, which signifies the spirit of Diwali. Diwali epitomises the triumph of good over evil. Different parts of India celebrate it in different styles. Being a south Indian, we take oil bath early in the morning, wear new dress, fire crackers, offer prayers and eat legiyam before eating sweets and savouries. The agenda is not complete without exchanging sweets and savouries with friends and relatives. A visit to the temple in the evening followed by bursting of fire crackers rounds off the celebration. My diwali dishes are From Left - Muruku, Ribbon Pakoda, Halwa, Cashew-Badam Burfi, Legiyam and the diya in the centre was coloured by my son at school.

Have a look at the Little India street, Singapore decorated with lights for Diwali.
