5 Nov

I love the concept of washing the front of the house that takes place over here. I hate to differentiate but this is something I see only here, i.e. South India. In the north people do wash their houses but it’s a different feel altogether which deserves a separate post.


What I love is how everything is fussed over in a non-fussy way, how it’s just a part of every day life. The sweeping, then the washing and then the rangoli. I’ve always been fascinated by these designs and have tried my hand at them back when I had the enthusiasm to do it all. I love the simple every day designs, the complex festive designs, the colours, the combinations and everything! 


So because today is Diwali and because I live here, this is what is outside my house today thanks to my mum who always wants one on a festival and thanks to my cook who takes the initiative on every festival.



Happy Diwali :)
