Gorgeous graphic. And Happy Diwali! I've enjoyed reading last year's post as well. each daisy blossoms from a plant that has its own spot where its roots are embedded--so true for all of us.
I still think about Lahiri's book as well as the film which I've recommended to anyone who has had to 'leave home.' Just finished 'Death of Vishnu.'
Take good care and have a Diwali sweet for me!

Maalie said...

And a Happy Diwali to you!

Mridula said...

So how did you celebrate Diwali this year Celine.

Thank you. And I wish you the same.:)

indicaspecies said...

Lakshmi,

Thank you for the wishes, and for checking out the info for me. Appreciated.:)

indicaspecies said...

Zhu,

Hey, I whole heartedly agree with you.:)

indicaspecies said...

Noni,

Thank you. Oh, so you read so much of Indian-related stuff? That's so interesting.:)

The connotation of the daisy and its plant is still applicable in my case and it made me smile to learn in your case too.;)

indicaspecies said...

Maalie,

Thank you for the good wishes.

It's interesting to read about Samhain, thanks for that link. I wish you a happy Samhain Maalie.:)

Mridula, as usual, it was a normal working day for us here. However, towards evening, I walked over (rather than drive in the snail-paced traffic of the day in that area) to mingle with the jubilating crowd. Most gather at Salmiya - an area where Indians are concentrated having quite a few Indian schools located nearby. Then it was an attempt to enjoy the display of fireworks with the deafening noise.

It made me smile to see though that each year the security in this area increases. I'm not sure if the law and order enforcement officials are comfortable as yet with the ruckus caused by Diwali celebration by the Indian community in this country. More police cars were patrolling Salmiya this time, and there was even a fire engine ready at hand.:)

Then it was a good dinner time with a group of friends in one of the best Indian restaurants here. That's it for now. Perhaps more this weekend, which is almost round the corner.;)
