Diwali celebration


Hope everyone had a great Diwali celebration.Here are few photos showing how my family celebrated the festival of lights.
As in any Maharashtrian home we woke up early.Relaxed our body with uthana (fragrant paste of chandan) and a warm bath with Mysore sandal soap.In our new attire we performed pooja and offer neivedhyam to the deity.Neivedhyam for Diwali basically includes different types of pohe and faral (the snacks that is made for Diwali).We enjoyed the snacks and spend our evening by worshipping a temple (where we enjoyed fireworks) and meeting up a few friends.


                    Neivedhyam -dudh(milk) pohe,gul (jaggery)pohe and batata (potato) pohe along with faral.


                      Faral clockwise(chivda,spicy shankarpali,nankhatai,besan ladoo,rava ladoo,kachori and karanji)
