Hello everyone. Welcome to OpenLinkNight. I have been enjoying a week’s holiday on the festive season of ‘Diwali’ or ‘Deepawali’, which is celebrated almost all over India, in the nearly same fashion and enthusiasm with lots of fireworks, sweets and reconnecting with family. Fireworks have been an integral part of our celebration and every year we wait for new variants to hit the local markets. This year was special too. I am sharing one of the sky lanterns we launched from the rooftop. I have seen these things flying for a very long time, but this year, tried for the first time. It is even now that I am writing this post, I can hear the sounds or the gorgeous burst of crackers up above.



The other aspect of my holidays I enjoyed was participating in twitter prompts. I have never been a great activist on twitter but it was nice to see the micro prompts and the wonderful participation out there, lots of talented writers focusing on philosophy, romance, sensuality and what not. It was wonderful.

Lots of love and sweets for all of you here; I am looking forward to what you share on OLN.
