In tamil nadu, we have a mini festival of lights, called Karthigai deepam. This time we used to Burn back the Left out crackers, and this is the day we really illuminate the Diyas, and make the home glow (and sometimes burn..). If Diwali itself has a blowback, that not many people are celebrating it with the enthusiasm, they usually had.. Karthigai Deepam can do nothing better.
But my uncle had enjoyed, This festival with his new 6 MP Canon Power Shot, Digital Camera. I received this photo in less than 2 mins, after the lights were on. I appreciate the enthusiasm, and the passion for technology he has. My Mayavaram mama !
