My dear Mary ,
I was glad to read ur letter a few days ago , but as I was busy with diwali celebrations , I could not write to u earlier than this .
Let me tell u about diwali celebrations as living in America , u would not be familiar to this indian festival ...............Diwali is a festival of lamps , candles and fireworks. The houses are decorated with blinking neon lights. Everyone wears special clothes . The night turn into day . Fireworks in the sky look like stars . The Lakshmi pura is performed on a grand scale . Gifts are given to Brahmins .
So this is how we Indians celebrate DIWALI ..convey my regards to ur parents and hope to see u soon in india .
