No wonder I am having a great time here. Last week I traveled to Kanpur (my hometown). It was my mother’s birthday hence the celebrations were doubled! I baked a cake for her too, which she cut! And in her words, ‘it was heavenly delicious’.. Happy Times!
I also met my old friends and extended family – which was wonderful! We laughed, remembered those old days when we used to chat for hours, play pranks on each other and what not! Old Friends are ‘Gold Friends’ to say the least..
And then.. this weekend we celebrated Diwali at home (after like two years).. So this is all I have been engaged in to for the past few days.. And whenever I get some free time, I spend it in blogging..Oh and did I mention I have shopped non-stop! (Ha.. now that’s nothing unexpected, is it?) Well the difference is I have been shopping all kinds of Indian ethnic wear.. which I am gonna take back to Phoenix with me.. (yes, that’s the plan)!
As much as I love India, I have mixed feelings for this wonderful country too.. but let’s leave this subject for some other day..
Undoubtedly, my time here is just flying.. and we also have some more traveling plans in the coming weeks (I am looking forward to it!)
Here are few pictures we clicked on the eve of Diwali.. This lovely Lehenga-choli was gifted to me by my lovely husband..
