Okay, the time is 4:15 and I have not stated to get ready, beside I have removed all my photos from my memory card to my computer. So, tonight my camera is going warm. However, I am still facing this major problem of which dress to wear. I am leading towards my red dress, but than my dad said you might want your farwell dress. That is a good option too… So now I am standing with at elast 4 different dresses to chose from. On thing is for sure, my Boss dress has to wait, it is not really right cut for Diwali too formal (perfect for my brother master dinner celebration).
Anyways, I have to figure out the dress soon, because the time is ticking. Have a nice evening everyone, I am planing to eat a lot of indian food to night! 😀 So I have been to the gym done my work out so I can eat a lot! I have the food planed kind of good!
The yearly Diwali festival last day for registration is on the 7th of October.
Mostly the fest is at a hotel in Stockholm, with live music, dance preforamnces, food and lottery with amazing things to win. THe festival has grown a lot and more and more people are attending to celebrate Diwali. I am really excited to attend the festival. Really, loving it.
I am hoping my dress will be done before the 24th but I am not sure. The dress is being made in India and than I have to get it here with UPS. The dress is made by my good friend who is a designer and a great one.
My dress is the right one, so amazing.
How can I miss the Diwali festival when I am in Sweden? May be it is more right to say, I can not miss the festival. It is the biggest festival in India and also for the Swedish- Indian society’s biggest fest, the fest is on 24th of October. I love the festival it is very nice to attened the celebration. During the festival there are a lot of preformance dance and music, good food, nice people on top of everything, it is okay to talk about India! fes
There is time time left to registrate for the festival celebration on Sweden-Indian website. Well, I can only say I love the festival in India and Sweden. I just love this colorful happy festival. I hope we will meet there.
Have a look on Swedish Indian societ website.
Pictures I got from a friend in India from Diwali. Well, when I was in Pune I have never seen anything like this before. The lighting is very beautiful. When I think of Diwali I think of firework and not this sort of function.
Also, of course it is crowded and with men. There for, it might not be a good idea for me to visit a place like that (at least alone).
How bad were then pollutions?
When I have been in Pune, the pollutions have been really bad. The pollutions have been so much it was impossible to see some meters ahead also heavy smell and very noisy. The fireworks are not the same as we have in Sweden. (I think). Indians’ are make more sound and more pollution, is what I think. But, may be the biggest different is in India they are using more of the firework and therefor my experiences are worse with firework in India then Sweden.
My sister in India is amazing creative and good.
They have a tradition of making homemade Diwali lamps. This year my sister made a lamp of small plastic tea cups.
The sort of cups you get from street sellers.
Amazing idea. The lamp turn out really amazing. Something different from the traditional colorful paper lamps.
Why could I not be i in India now? To be apart of this festival with the preparation, prays, food and family.
So this upcoming Saturday has the Indian-Swedish organization organized a Diwali festival!
For two years ago, I went on the fest and it was very nice celebration, with Indian food, dance and speeches.
I hope this year will be even better! Diwali a happy festival, and lovely.
The photo is taken at a Jain temple in Pune. My host/Indian family took me to the temple, the temple is a block away from our home. Also, the temple was very crowded with dressed up Indians.
