Big festival week has started in Maharashtra in India. Unfortunately,I missed it this time because of delay joining a company in Mumbai.
India has some festivals which is related with each religions. I only participated in Diwali which is taken in October. That was second visit to India for me in last October and I went to Pune to see my friend. I had not have any information about Diwali. My friend invited some neighbors and we had beer or snack in their room. After sunset, the sound of firecracker and fireworks started everywhere. We went out to see it. Everyone had bunch or firecracker and lighter on their hands and turned fire on it, threw it away. Even a little child like 4 or 5 years old had it and enjoyed to throw it in front of people. Really, the sounds were crazy and I could not hear what were they talking even from person next to me. It was like a war…I was scared because spark and smoke made me hard walk around. However, all people except me seemed enjoying that crazy situation and asked me to make fire. That was kept until late at night.
Now, people in Maharashtra may be celebrating Ganesh Festival. I hope that is less crazy than Diwali which I saw in Pune. Indian way to do something is always more than I expected…
HAPPY GANESH CHARTURTHI!!
