Agam and I don’t pray the traditional way. We don’t know how to do it. Simply said when our parents prayed, we eyed the mithais and the fruits and waited for the pooja to be over so we could grab the goodies asap. So we do our “own” thing. We look at God and speak to him as if he is a human. We end up with some very interesting prayers some times. I wish I could go back and capture some of them.
Below is what I came up with today as I lit the incense stick to mark the beginning of this auspicious day.
Diwali is not just a festival that celebrates the victory of good over evil. It also celebrates the victory of sweets over diet and smiles over stress. The day when you keep your woes aside and indulge in the joys of unlimited kaju katlis, halwas and ras malais 🙂
