Agnijaat 24.10.16


Happy Monday kids, have a great week! Durgapuja is gone, so is Kojagari Laxmipuja and the final two are about to show up, one after the other.

I have long stopped bursting crackers on Kalipuja (Dipavali), but I still love to decorate home with candles or earthen lamps. Back in Burdwan I used to head for our village home, to deck up that house during the Kalipuja, and attend the puja held there.

There were many candidates to decorate the Burdwan house, but few for the ancestral home. So we never skipped that.

How our preferences change with time, don’t they? As a child we used to buy firecrackers by dozen, and I remember spreading them out in the sun, so that if there was any moisture in them that gets soaked by the sun and they give their loudest roar or brightest sparkles on Diwali night.

We were allowed to burst crackers on only Dipawali night, it was a very good habit instilled in us. It made us love Dipavali night a lot more and spared the neighbours from nuisance day after day! We maintained that habit even when we were in our late teens, then I bought Misha, my pet spitz, she made me forget bursting crackers. I have never seen a creature so afraid of crackers!

Again, in advance, have a blessed festival of lights on 29th and may the Mother Goddess Kali destroy all evil from your world!


A bookworm transformed into an addicted writer. I love to write and illustrate them myself. By love I mean love, no half-hearted relationship, a full-fledged, passionate love, I can’t pass two days in a stretch without writing/painting (cyber), just feel empty like lovers do when their lovers are away on a tour! Even though I am thoroughly enjoying self-publishing with amazon, but if you like my work and want to publish my works in your magazine, books or better if you want to publish a book of my works please make me very happy by contacting me. Or if you want to sell my works on commission basis only!! contact me, I will be quite relieved. Honestly writing and selling your own work is a very BORING combination. So you are more than welcome! Mail me, or go to- my blog (I have 16 blogs in wordpress, all active, some on daily basis, every one on weekly basis screaming and vowing my LOVE for writing and painting- this one is first-born, so special) (You will get the link to my remaining blogs there) or you can check out my ezines- monthly- And if you want fb you can go to my page, linkedin- my email id and I am in goodreads and completelynovel too I guess I said enough about myself, right? You will forget if I stuff too much here, so if you are curious to know this humble creature just join me in my blogs :)
