The day called Deepavali/Diwali

In India, its that time of the year when there is a sweet smell in the air - the smell of fire crackers and there is celebration all around.
Its that time of the year when activists think of the poor kids in Sivakasi and ask you not to purchase fire crackers.
Its that time of the year when you wear new clothes, go to the temple and sometimes pray.
Elsewhere, its that time of the year when you miss India very badly.
Its that time of the year when you want to celebrate but its just another work day for people around you.
Its that time of the year when you want to burst some fire crackers, watch special programs on TV, eat delicacies and share them with neighbours but you are sitting in front of the computer and blogging....
Happy Deepavali everyone.
