Subho Dipaboli (Happy Diwali)

Before talking about anything, I wanna wish Subho Dipaboli (Happy Diwali) to all of my friends, reader and well wishers. Yet another festival of India, probably the biggest one in India. Most of the Indian decorate their home with lights, different kinds of lamps and candles. People plays with crackers. I do not have much idea about outside Bengal, cause I never been away from my friends and family in this particular event. Last year obviously I was not with my family, however I was in my friends home in Midnapur, celebrating Kali Puja in their home.

Kali Puja is another big event in Bengal. Ma Kali, the goddess of eternal energy (in Bengali Shakti), sometime called Shama ma as well. People are keen to stay home at the day of Kali Puja to decorate their home and play crackers with their family. Even the puja actually take place at night. We visit pandals with friends and family next day of the puja.

That is all about the Kali puja and dipaboli celebration in short. For us, we lighted the candles in the evening, we all are together, my sister came from Mumbai for this occasion. Our home is looking great with lights, tuni bulbs. I run and take my camera hoping for it is fully charged, and found it was. I bring out my tripod, cause I want to experiment for HDR and in night shot it is somewhat required. Here comes few snaps I took that day.
