Deepavali 2010 - November 05, 2010 

The day started off as early as 330 am for my mom to do the routine Friday Pooja, 430 for my dad and 445 for myself. After having oil bath i started bursting crackers and waited for my mamoos - Embar Kannan to come. In the meantime had the oppurtunity to view my self in Podhigai in the special concert under Smt. Sowmya akka with my uncle, Neyveli Narayanan uncle on mrudhangam and Sundar uncle on Tabla.

Mamoos reached home around 730 and we started bursting the morning quoto for almost 1 and half hours and then had a great brunch - thanks to my amma. Then we went to my Chitthappa's house where my paternal grandparents also had come. After taking their blessings spent the day till the evening around 530pm. we were joined by both athai's and then came back home around 6pm. Mamoos came to our house in the evening around 630pm and the night round crackers started with a 500 wala followed by many sarams, areal shots, 12, 30 , 50,130 shots and ended up with 1000 wala.

Janani akka was also joined with us with her set of crackers and it was all great fun through out for almost another 1 and half hours. Opposite house friends and uncle also involved in our cracker party and in all the day went so well with good dinner made by amma again.

My sincere thanks to Mama for sponsoring the Crackers and also for joining me today to enjoy the day. It is indeed one of my most memorable Diwali celebrated. Looking forward to teh next one in 2011!!!!!!
