Kicking off the celebrations in our new home….

ImageI love this time of the year. With autumn setting in and the crispness in the air, its time for the festivities to begin. In our home they start with Dusshera. A festival celebrated all over India in a big way .It signifies the victory of good over evil. Fond memories include a day off school, decorating with fresh mango leaves and marigolds, dressing up , eating jalebis  , and a favourite part was killing Ravan. ( the demon ) My mom would make a rice doll  which represented Ravan just like I’ve made in this picture and my brother and I would with a lot of excitement  break it with our feet ,signifying killing the demon.  It was fun when I was a child and now it  brings out the child in me and my husband. A tradition which we will definitely continue for all the years to come.
