A Bright Night

Two days back I was studying almost about seven in the evening. My studies

was very much disturbed because a group of my neighbors were talking very

loudly. So I just tried to look them through the window and make out why they

were talking so much.

Wow ! it was so beautiful. There I saw one house glowing in the dark. they had

lighted the whole house with “diyas”. As usual I ran out with my camera to

capture this sight. my neighbor was very happy to see me take photo of their

house and so she was very interested to lend some information to me.


She told that it was one Thrikkartika day

that they light their house with “diyas”.

In detail Thrikkarthika the most

important function among Brahmins (a division of Hindu’s,a

caste).Thrikkarthika is defined as the

Festival of Lights.

Then she invited me into main hall of their house and showed some food

preparations which they had kept for their God and some lanterns. This

preparation included banana and some other things like avil, malar ect . she

told that according to their custom at any hindu festivals they keep such a

preparation before their God “Ganapathy” and only after that they would eat .

After some time I came back home and I also thanked here for sharing

information.

Maybe this made her very happy that she came gave that food preparation to us.

Yumm…. It was very sweet and tasty.

Hi Susan :)

Very interesting information and excellent photos.

You have demonstrated by your action a very important lesson in making friends - IF YOU WANT TO MAKE GOOD FRIENDS, SHOW GENUINE INTEREST IN OTHERS AND THEIR ACTIVITIES.

I hope and pray that you will get good marks in your exams.

Best wishes :)
