Indeed Deepawali fervour is here with sellers selling lamps, small laxmi statues and paste it rangolis.

As for my information, Dipawali starts from Vasu Baras, at least in Maharashtra when the calf of the domestic cows are worshiped which was yesterday. Let me wish all the IMers from India and abroad and their families a very happy and safe Dipawali. May the eternal light brighten your days and the year ahead.

May also all your plans in life and for travel get fulfilled. Happy Diwali once again.

I thought I'll post a few photos to keep the festive cheer as the days pass. These are from an earthenware shop that adds diya (earthen lamps) to its inventory when the festival approaches. At other times, he sells matkas (pitchers) and gamlas (pots for plants).

The regular ones are seen in front and bigger ones on the right. On the table is the pottery from Khurja, U.P. that would be available otherwise as well.



These are newer varieties of diya - they appear ''pressed'' and are thicker and have designs on them, like lotus and similar designs inspired from temples. They're selling well now and appear to be made using molds of some kind.



This kid was a bit confused over what to buy (he finally selected the red painted ones).



What hasn't changed are the traditional saris of womenfolk here - so colorful.
