Diwali festival is a special time in India. Its worth visiting the country just in order to see the vibrant clothes, colors, lights, firecrackers lighting up the sky and immense variety of sweets and snacks. The streets look adorned thanks to Rangoli drawn, each house trying to compete with the other with its creativity, size and usage of different colors. This is such a nostalgic time for me. I remember my growing up years, getting up way early in the morning (around 3:00 am), taking head bath, wearing new clothes and running to the terrace to burst crackers.
