October 31, 2008

Musical Mood : Kaliki chilakala koliki

I was busy last week so could not post this on time ๐Ÿ™‚

Internet is something that makes us so near even though so far……Ya, I really felt good when my brother sent me the photos the night of Diwali ….and felt atleast better than before after talking to them on webchat ๐Ÿ™‚ Thanks to google…. ๐Ÿ™‚ And here’s the photo report ๐Ÿ˜€

Deepa+ Avali = A row of Lights ๐Ÿ˜€ = Deepavali

Our Apartment lit up with lights ๐Ÿ˜€

Bhoochakram ๐Ÿ˜€

Chichu Buddi – thats what people used to call me when I was a kid ๐Ÿ˜€

Kakara povvotti ๐Ÿ˜€

These are some of the crackers I burn…..I am scared of all these lakshmi bombs etc hehe…..still I watch when my bro does!!

So thats my Deepavali :D…..My first one away from Home !!

PS: The language used is south Indian language called TELUGU my mother tongue….sweetest language I have known ๐Ÿ˜€

    ๐Ÿ™‚ The deepa + avali looks great.. i always feel good when i see the earthen diya lighted up rather than the electric ones.. i am not old fashioned or something but some how it really feels great when i see the traditional ways.

    do check my bhoochakkar and anar here
    Sahaja : Thanks Sakhi :)…….I love to keep the traditional things alive and going ……along with the trends now….Ya checked yours out….Very lively

    Indians are so good at celebrating! – what i noticed, they love so much to use every occasion to celebrate in a joyful, friendly atmosthere..

    Russians also like to celebrate – but unfortunately, they only use is as a good excuse for exessive drinking :((
    Sahaja : Thanks Axinia……Ya, most of us love to be with friends and family and celebrate rather than being on oneself….There is problem of excessive drinking in some communities but am sure not on festivals ๐Ÿ™‚

    Cool photos and lovely description! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Do you guys and gals burst crackers in the corridors and not on the terrace or on the ground ๐Ÿ˜ฏ
    Sahaja : :-)….Ya Raj, we start off with small things on corridors and slowly move to terrace for big stuff….Its actually fun coz, we children keep competition among various flats etc and it becomes very lively……I love watching fireworks standing on the terrace ๐Ÿ™‚

    Belated Happy Diwali… ๐Ÿ™‚ nice pics…telgu is indeed a sweet. i would sy a musical language..and now it is included with Kannada as the classical language(sanskrit and tamil are the other 2.)

    Nice pics. I noticed that it is Kodak C315 camera.
    I had a telugu friend in college and I learned a little bit from her, enough for us to hold a conversation about simple things and understand each other. But I have forgotten most of it in the past decade.

    ๐Ÿ™‚ No mystery! I downloaded one pic, opened it in MS picture manager, and clicked on properties. It shows the complete settings used for the photo. I was interested because they are firecracker photos. ๐Ÿ™‚ Idhi na javaabu ni prasna kosi. (please correct me, I think the choice of words and syntax is wrong?)
