Jor Bagh Diwali

Diwali, the festival of lights, is one of the biggest Hindu festivals of the year. It is next Saturday, the 17th. Tonight, however, the Jor Bagh neighborhood association had a Diwali get together. It was amazing, almost like going to a wedding. Fancy dress, fancy decorations, waiters carrying trays of food, music and dancing. Because we had two sleepy kids, we were not able to stay for dinner or for the Mr. Jor Bagh contest, where men dressed as their favorite Bollywood stars, but we did get to chat with a few neighbors and watch some really nice dancing. Arthur slept until the music got really loud and Dorian was in awe until he fell asleep in his chair, trying oh so hard to stay awake. And, thanks to Xavier and his mobile, I have a nice little video down below.
