Today morning.. while I was having breakfast.. my husband called up and told me that he was sending an important e mail.. and that I'd be really interested in it...
As soon as I got the mail.. I got really excited.. it was an art exhibition and it said that any type of artist could participate.. I got more excited.. I thought this was my chance of exhibiting my talent..
I gathered up all my painting stuff and started a new painting.. at 8 in the morning.. this was the first time I had ever painted so early... I painted for 5 hours straight... as I was on the verge of completing the painting my husband called up tell me.. that I could not participate as the exhibition's artists have already been selected.. which he confirmed by talking to them on phone.. Moreover, it was an exhibition where you could sell your paintings and I do not have the license for that... I was disheartened but in the midst of all the confusion and excitement this is what I painted....

The name "Diwali" is a contraction of "Deepavali" which translates into "row of lamps". Diwali involves the lighting of small clay lamps (diyas or dīpas) filled with oil to signify the triumph of good over evil. These lamps are kept on during the night and one's house is cleaned, both done in order to make the goddess Lakshmi feel welcome.
