Hello everyone, hope you’ve had a great week! I’ve had a action-packed one with great weather welcoming the Indian New Year, Diwali in Dubai. It is festivity all around as the entire city sparkles with Diwali diyas, stunning string lights, rangolis, fireworks and attractive decorations as the five day festival celebrating light, knowledge and good nature has become one of the most anticipated and iconic holidays for individuals across the globe. The story of Diwali is a simple one that signifies the victory of good over evil and according to ancient scripts, Diwali brings the Indian goddess Laxmi mata to your home to take away all your troubles and bless you with bright and prosperous days ahead. 

Diwali was traditionally seen as a coming together of communities, an exciting time to make resolutions and a period of indulgence. People used to have extremely modest lifestyles and looked forward to the time when they could re-decorate the house, buy presents for loved ones and prepare a beautiful homemade feast packed with sweets and traditional cuisine. Today, the celebrations have become even grander especially with the inclusion of themes, live performances and private firework displays. Diwali is also the time to reflect on the year gone by and to wholeheartedly show acceptance, compassion, love and to embrace everyone. 

Recently a dear friend organized a Diwali bash at the Address Montgomerie, Dubai where many familiar faces gathered for an afternoon of fun and frolic. The food in particular featured an international spread with gourmet touches like truffle pasta and gnocchi along with tantalizing vegetarian options to suit all palettes. The banquet was adorned with festive touches of rose petals, diyas, rangoli and Ganeshji’s idols which, along with entertainment, fusion dancing, Miss Diwali 2015 contest and a DJ playing to many trending Bollywood numbers … made it a super hit. Pictures speak a thousand words and here are the highlights from our celebration …

While the manner in which we celebrate Diwali has evolved over the years, the essence of the festival is to spread happiness and by minimizing the use of crackers to preserve the ecosystem, we can continue to uphold this beautiful tradition. Life is all about the legacy you leave behind and the relationships you forge along the way, which is what matters in the grand scheme of things. I look forward to hearing stories about your New Year celebrations across cultures so do write in and share your moments of joy and happiness with us.

Until we rendezvous again,
