Diwali 2K7

In many ways, Diwali this year was different. Just 4 days, and I was engaged in soo many activities :D

It included - watching Saaw-wariya, which apparently in Tamil means 'Come, die'. (Probably meant to be a sequel to DDLJs Come, fall in love).

Met my youngest (cousin) bro - Kabir, for the first time :)

This was also the first Diwali in the new house (after 22 years at the previous one!), which, being on the 10th storey, had a truly spark-tacular view of the city!

For a change, Nehu and I were enthused enough to make Rangoli 2 times in the 4 days, which pleased mom immensely :)

This was also the longest period spent without checking work-related mails..

One of the most memorable diwalis :)
