Chhappan Bhog or Annakut at Anjana and Rajesh's home. Lovely Darshan and yummy home-cooked food. Nothing beats the taste of a meal lovingly put together for Prasad. Pet bhar jaaye par mann nahin!
Wearing a golden saree that belongs to my dear friend Reena. Simple, elegant and yet festive because of the sheen! A closed-collared blouse, mother-of-pearl earring and a gold bangle to complete the uncluttered look! Exhaustion from over-dressing and excess adornment is setting in... I wonder if I wasnt on the 100 saree challenge, I wouldn't bother to wear a saree today... and on a lot of other days.
They were neighbours. Samarth and Anagha. Similar in age, growing up together and the best of friends. Their homes just shared a wall in between. During Diwali, Anagha would invariably light diyas for the entire foyer, covering Samarth's home door as well. Her rangoli would be common too, a large design encompassing the whole area... Samarth's parents did not mind this at all. In fact, they were glad for her enthusiasm to be selfless enough to decorate the whole exterior... Years passed and this tradition continued every year... Eventually Anagha and Samarth's friendship blossomed into love. With the approval from both set of parents, they decided to get married. She moved into his home right next door after marriage. The first Diwali after their wedding, as in the previous years, she did a large rangoli and lit diyas outside both the homes. Her parents as well as parents-in-law were truly proud of her... Diwali had just become more bright and beautiful!!! #dreamydrapes #sareestories #lovestories #diya #childhoodlove #diwali #festivities
