Its really a special time of the year. The whole of India happily explodes – first in colour and then in light – as navarathri and deepavali follow in quick succession. Bakri Id lends gaity, sumptuous feasts and gaity. Friends in the US celebrate “Thanks giving turkeys” and Christmas and New Year follow suit. And how can we forget Boxing day?
The year’s countdowns, highlights and lowlights take over the media and the world prepares to take stock of the year past, chalk up the wins, meditate on the losses and prepare to face the new year ahead with optimism.
Perhaps its the best time of the year to wish everyone a very happy festive season – not too soon, not too late – just about right! Happy festive season everybody! And bring out the smileys!
