Happy Diwali!!

I know this post is kinda late… but hey, Diwali is not yet over, so officially I am in time :D. This post is going to be a pretty short one as I am just home (you guessed it right, I entered the home and 1st thing I am doing is blogging) from my Aunt’s place and I am tired, happy and tummy full.

The day began with Puja of Goddess Lakshmi and then moved on to peat-Puja. My Aunt is a great cook. She made my Favorite Gojju Pulihora in other words Tamarind Rice and it tasted so yum.

‘Rain, rain go away,

Come again another day,

Harini wants to go out,

Rain, rain go away’.

I even tried to bribe rain God saying – “I will go and break a coconut in the temple tomorrow, if it stops raining”. As usual, me being the God’s favorite child, it rained harder. It rained until all my plans



India and South Africa are out, can you believe that? The teams what were on the top in the ODI rankings are out and have just managed a single win!! I am not at all happy that two of my favorite most teams are out of the tournament. These were teams I was rooting for, hoping and praying for their victory and they dint even make it to semis. I was rooting for Pakistan for the 1st time againstAustralia, That’s how desperate I was for India to make it through.
