Pune Journal…..Lights…..

Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge:

“Light signifies the spiritual illumination brought about by truth, knowledge, love and peace. Light is synonymous with life”. What better way to celebrate ‘illumination’ than Diwali, the festival of Lights when homes and commercial properties are lighted up to welcome love and prosperity.

Diwali lights in our new home in Pune. I remember as children placing diyas’ or earthen lamps all over the terrace, balconies, courtyards, doorways and start lighting the wicks before it became dark. The house would glow in ethereal light.  Now convenience of ‘strings’ has simplified decoration.
