Happy Deepavali

Friends wish you all

Deepavali, the  Festival of Lights is favorite among kids because they get a chance to light fire crackers.

But my kids this year decided against lighting crackers as they wanted to protect our environment from air and noise pollution.

But, the sky is lit with fire crackers of various colors and shapes.
