Diwali – Quiet and Praying…

Diwali was quite noisy around my home…..but my heart was unusually quiet. Was not in the mood to do anything. But, on my mom’s insistence, I decided to do something for the girls and they all came out so well and vanished so quickly into the tummy, too.

Thankfully, some pics were clicked, while making them to share with you all.

Here’s the Ribbon aka Nada Thenkuzhal saga….

And this one was extremely delicious, according to the girls. πŸ™‚

Gulab jamuns.....MTR is the best....

And I made Mysore Pakh after so many years…..

And the hands had a mind of their own and dig into like this….

And it vanished it like this….

Hope you all had a great time with family and friends, on Diwali. πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ Here’s wishing everyone a very happy, HEALTHY life ahead. πŸ™‚
