IMG-20151017-WA0006

What a day. It feels like the days with bad news does not end. Not only can not my friend and I manage a skype evening. But now I got to know, the dress won’t arrive till the Diwali festival. I had so much hope to get my dress on time. May be that is the thing, timings are not the strongest side for many people. Therefore I have to look on my old dresses what to wear and I am totally lost. One thing is for sure, I can not wear a black dress for Diwali. The festival for light!
Any way, this is a small issue.

My sister is getting married

In January the weekend before I am arriving in India my sister is getting married. The worst part is I can not attened the wedding due to final exams.
My sister had send me pictures on her sarees, she is going to wear 4 difference sarees all with yellow due to somesort of traditional reasons. I have so much to learn from Indian culutre.
However, the photos on her sarees are beautiful. Indians sarees are extremly beautiful and indian women are beautiful therefore everything becomes duble beautiful. I am so happy for her she is going to be the most beautiful bride ever!

My culture is so dull, white dress for marrage. Colors are so much more fun.

Do not forget

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.

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.

outdoor movie

Yesterday, my friend and I went to a outdoor movie. The movie was the last one during stockholm filmfestival. However, my friend and I gave up on the movie after 30 minutes. Due, to bad volume, and coldness. May be we were not prepared for the coldness but when it is almost impossible to hear the voices so it would not be fun to stay.
On the other side, I am not at all upset due to the movie, because after a long time we finaly met!

The dish is from Peru and non-veg. On the menu it was written typical street food. Well, the meat is grilled cow stomach with spicy marinate on top is the yellow sauce which I have no idea, because it was not spicy at all served with potatoes. The cow stomach had a interesting texture I must say. A bite of chewing and nothing special.
We said before, we need to try something wired which we have not tried before. The reason was, it is easy to get samosa, hot dogs, and other food which did not feel special. So, when we saw this dish we said okay, let us try this because when will we get the opportunity to order something like this again?

Happy Holi

Yesterday, I was in the hostel but we as many other had a fire.
They light the fire at 8 and they walked around it and I do not know what.
What I did was just to observe what they did. It was pretty interesting, and try to get an answer why Holi is celebrated and with fire.
Some of my friends did not have any answer why they Holi is celebrated, even if some of them from Punjab. what I understood was Holi is from Punjab and is not original celebrated in the south of India.
What I understood from my friends more or less, in simple explanation was demons tried to kill the son. The son pried to a god. female demon tired to kill the son in the fire and the female had a mantel cover around her, but the son god came and cover the son with the mantel and the demon died instead. Very simple explanation.

Then today is holi with all the colors. The girls here, started to play around with colors at 9-ish and it is not safe to leave the room if you do not want to get color on you. But they are suppose to celebrate holi in the basement, but they play everywhere in the hostel.
Many in second and third year are not going to play because of our exams (they start from tomorrow and keep on till end of March).
Also, I asked why they are celebrating holi with all the colors. My friend answered, it is to forget and forgive all the negative perception, thoughts you have towards other people, person. And start on a new page, enjoy.
More or less, what she said.

Happy Holi!
