The Very Special People


Sunday, October 24, 2010


O its that time of the year again!! India has a big season of festivals, starting with Ramazan(Ramadan) and Ganesh Chaturthi (in Aug-Sept) followed by Durga Puja and Dussehra (in Oct), then Diwali (on Nov 5th), and lastly, Christmas (in Dec). This is a special privilege of being in the multicultural country like India where every festival is celebrated with full tempo. Especially, if you are living in a cosmopolitan cities of India like Hyderabad, you are blessed to witness half a year of thunderous celebrations, no kidding :) :) :)

I really like these festive times, one thing that really excites me is the decorations and the lighting. Sometimes, when you are totally into your life, and the monotonicity has taken it's complete toll on you then one fine day, when you are walking along the streets or buying your grocery in the malls suddenly, you see the glitters and the colors of the festive season and instantly, you start feeling so good, you feel so relaxed and refreshed. Yes, that is exactly what happened to me today.

I'm sure you feel good on seeing colors too. There is a big connection of human mind with the colors and the lighting, and yes this is scientifically approved as well. So many times when we see something colorful it really makes us feel better and happy. Today I captured the beautiful lamps hanging in the mall, and I thought I will share here with you all. Hoping that it makes you happy as well, and wish you lots of love and peace.

Great colors! That's an advantage of having so many confessions present in one city.
