This Diwali was full of contribution... I did my bit for global warming and the kids who toil all year along making those crackers... Funny, the noise levels were perceptibly lower this year, departing from the usual all-day long boom-bang-schreee-soiwush-sharddadadda...


Didn't take any photos this year though, but I do have pics from two years ago.

An attempt has been made to convey a sense of the colours and smells...

Of course, you can always reduce the amount of crackers you burst: and enjoy the show others enjoy putting on... :-)







Saw this really cool looking spider while down at the garden. Was helping amma move some plants...








Shown here are the front and rear views of the spider, as well as an interesting detail noticed on it's web.
