Diwali Greetings!

(Please double-click the picture to enlarge.)

Here are some sweets for you on the occasion of Diwali :-) I could not resist myself purchasing these colorful sweets from a nearby confectionary today. In the coming days, I will try to add some of the recipes for making these tempting sweets at your home.

And here is one of the inspiring stories on Diwali ...

"It was the sacred Deepavali Day. A few devotees had gathered round the Master who sat underneath a huge, banyan tree.

A devotee asked: "Master, how best may a person celebrate the Deepavali Day?

And the Master said: "By kindling the light inextinguishable-the light which can never be extinguished."

"And how may that be done?" asked the devotee.

The Master said: "Today, go and treat everyone you meet as though you are meeting him for the last time. Give him all the love and understanding, kindness and care of which you are capable, and do all this without expecting anything in return-not even a simple words of thanks."

The Master paused for a while and then added: "And continue to do this every day!" - Author unknown -

Happy Diwali. Here in Utah the students learn about all the countries of the world when they are in sixth grade (12 years old) and tomorrow one of the sixth grades is having a lesson on Diwali. I was excited to hear they are learning about it, because I only knew about it from reading the Indian food blogs!
