A Diwali to Remember,at home

As the evening approached on Diwali day,the home got filled wih prayers and diyas for aprosperous year ahead.As the diyas were lighted and the prayers chanted the home filled with positive energy and brightness.We made it sure as the diyas were lighted from the entrance to the inner rooms,the lights were put off one by one to assimilate the festivities and light around us.Some lamps were hung on the tree that bends into our terrace.An evening to remember as it is....the diwali evening..

Before the pedestal

on the dining table,on a mirrormy lord krishna's pedestal
a corner of the room on top of the chest

below the chest
on top of the centre table

an island created keeping in mind the centre table in the centre of the room
the triangles of lamps...and their reflection

on the steps leading to the terrace
beautiful okeh of light and lamps,some lamps are handmade by recycling old bottles

beautiful bokeh on the bookshelf

a distant view
with prayers and waiting for the next diwali
