Here’s mine. I arrange the oil lamps on a plate for easier handling.
When my Mom was alive, she would celebrate it in a big way, since it is also a festival that honors brothers. We make a lot of yummy eats. Oh yes, all Hindu festivals are characterized by eating and being merry.
Here’s a picture that fascinated me. That’s a stack of firewood at the Udupi Krishna temple. The deity is very very beautiful and the story associated with it is even lovelier. Couldn’t get a pic of that, though. The temple is about 1500 years old and built entirely of wood. I couldn’t get enough of this stack, though. It is quite massive, as you can see.
Thank you, Unknown Mami, for hosting Sundays in my City.
