Diwali festival of lights

Since childhood diwali is one of my favorite festival, three things attracted me the most first is sweets, second is new cloth and third one are crackers, time passed but I still miss those pleasant days when I was a kid I kept roaming around the street nearby firing my crackers, this year being difficult for entire world, after a long I just came back from home to IITΒ  Kanpur celebrating diwali without crackers, friends and family πŸ‘ͺ. Covid 19 changed a lot so many unfortunate incident but every challenging incident evolve us in a different way, whole schedule changed drastically

Diwali morning from the balcony of my hostel

The day started with a shower of sunshine, sun a symbol of hope and life, watching sunrise πŸŒ… is my new favorite activity

The best part of the day is I didn’t have to go to lab πŸ”¬today πŸ˜‚, covid taught us to work from home 🏠 just 2-3 hours work today and then my laptop turned into my own theatre screen

This is the my workplace at home my study table πŸ™‚

Hostel premise a lush green and one of the most beautiful campus you will ever see, this diwali I was just kept on feeling the grace and beauty of nature

Side walk 🚢of the hostel
I can watch this for hours and each time I found it more beautiful 😍

This one is quite unique diwali for me maintaining social distancing πŸ‘€βœ–οΈπŸ‘€ norms away from home 🏠 and family but close to nature πŸŒΏπŸƒ

Finally in night I have lighten up two candles πŸ•― in front of my hostel room

These two candles made my day I felt like I’m lightning a cracker πŸ˜‚
Small diyas lighten up at the main gate of my hostel

This Diwali was one of the most unique and different experience for me, I wish this Covid situation gets better soon, Happy Diwali to all, may your life get fulfilled with joy and happiness πŸ™‚

  1. Your description of your enjoyment of your festival, even with all the restraints of Covid, was very touching. You appreciated small things like candles instead of fire crackers, and felt closer to Nature. I enjoyed your pictures too.
