The Festive Season

I was switching channels out of curiosity and came across this Hindi soap which had all the stars doing the garbha as the Navarathri is approaching. Now this brings back some of the fondest memories from Muscat. I remember that during Navarathri apart from the 8th day where we have to keep our books in front of God and not study the entire day, the most exciting part was playing 'dandiya'. Everything from selecting our clothes to choosing partners would begin at least 2 weeks before the night. We would dance and dance till dawn and that too in some of our very specially choreographed steps! All the girls will look fabulous in the glass work cholis and all the guys will look better-than-their-school-uniform-looks *teehee* Well maybe those were the days where we get to see them in their most fashionable attire with their hair gelled up and wotnot!! Really miss all that here... last Navarathri had no clue what to do as I was just new to this place... but does anyone have any clue about if dandiya nights are organized in Trivandrum?? Would definitely be of some great help :D

And finally my 'Birthday month' is coming over to an end and the next month isn't too bad with my parents' wedding anniversary coming up and with the new house shifting and Navarathri and Eid... it's quite a festival month. Wishing everyone a happy festival month.....here's me..signing off
