The Festive Month
My father was with the International Airports Authority of India due to which we pretty much shuttled between Delhi, Mumbai and Kolkatta. Apart from all the different cultures of these cities there was always one thing in common that I always looked forward to - The Festive Month. From the Pujas to Dussera leading up to the big day of Diwali and then Bhai Duj.
This is probably the only time I wish that it were nighttime all throughout the day so that the shimmering of the millions of lights that decorate the city is never-ending. Festivities somehow translate to an overall positive energy. People seem happy, they spend money giving businesses a booming time, Bollywood has its top blockbuster releases lined up, etc.
