Sweet Deepavali

Deepavali is near; we can hear the bomb sounds in every corner in the evenings and night. Every shopping malls are fully occupied by peoples wave, the shoppers went to the high of discounts, the television are full of cloths and domestic thing AD’s. People started greeting there loved ones, even we also started to greet each other’s. Cinema fans are advancing booking to their favorite movies; the television channels are in front to give us different programs. As the festival was in weekends there must be much plans how to celebrate the diwali. I too have decided to visit the beach a night before the diwali to watch the firework on the sky. This is the first time I am going to celebrate diwali in a flat, let me see if some neighbor people will also join with us!

I like to recall my childhood memories of diwali, think I was in UKG or in 1st Std when I realize the diwali. I used to sit in front of the cycle and dad pedal me with him to the nearest cracker shop; it’s not a shop, a palm leaf tent where an old woman used to sale Clay pots, when ever I leave from school I used go inside the tent and come out on the other side to reach our street easily, she will not scold me, because mom will buy pot form her. Dad buys me only small crackers like flowerpot, changu charka, wire sparkles and needle crackers. I just carry the small cover happily to the home and used to arrange the crackers in our cupboard near my dress, mom used to warn me not to keep near the cloths, but who hear her, At least 5 to 6 times I will arrange the crackers every day. Those days I don’t have any friend’s or brothers (my bro was 1 year old that time), so no one to fight with me to pick the crackers from me.

In the morning dad used to nip the wick of the cracker and one by one I will place it in a platform and fire it and go inside the house and close my ears. By closing my ears with the hand of cracker’s medicine, my ears will be turned into black. In evening mom lit a lamp out side near the front door, I used to burn the wire sparkles one by one and rotate to see the design. I really fear to fire the flowerpots and chackra, I just enjoy watching form a distance, when dad fire. I allot some cracker from that and burst on the Karthikai Thipam. This year I have planed to avoid over sound crackers, and buy colorful fireworks, which bring much lighter to the night. My hear full Diwali wishes to every one. (will be update after diwali....)
