A different Diwali indeed!!

Diwali,the much awaited festival of the year has finally arrived and what a festive day it turned out to be,complete with its share of adventures.The sky was overcast and it looked like it might pour any momen,but braving the weather and the hostile road conditions in chennai, four volunteers at the seva samajam centre,egmore decided to light up those pretty little faces on this special occasion! Since it was all planned in the last moment,We couldn't put together elaborate programs for the children,so it turned out to be a simple event,nevertheless the kids were elated to see us.They recieved us with wide smiles and greetings.We spent time talking with them(For once we let the kids do the most part of talking) and then it was time for sweets! We distributed sweets and chocolates that we had brought with us and clicked photos with the kids.The kids were obviously delighted to pose for the camera.Having made the kids feel special and important,it was finally time for us to leave.I personally loved every moment of it.This turned out to be a different diwali indeed!!As for the adventure part,it was in the evening,I will post about it later.

On to Diwali!!!

   The time for sweets,new dresses and of course, crackers is back!! Though semester is on its way approaching as fast as possible, Diwali is more demanding! Its demanding enjoyment and fun..With just two days to go, Diwali induces into everyone that sense of joy and pride..And rain as usual,putting off the 'cracker mood' every now and then but still making everyone hop after a really looooooooooooong summer...Enjoy as much as you can...On this day, I wish everyone a happy and safe diwali!!!
Note:Please have a look at the night sky on diwali for a visual treat!!(Be careful as well):-)

Hols finally!

Its been a long time since i posted,the past few weeks were the most hectic  days of this semester.tests,assignments tests,LDC presentation ,lab files submission.I am glad i survived all this without breaking look at our faces,our teacher knew what we were going through'You look like you are about to burst into tears any moment'. If at all I could blame anybody for my pitiable situation,it was myself!I waited till the last moment to prepare for my tests.I am used to 11th hour preparations,thats what I have been doing all along but this time it was different and I hadn't realised that i was in the final year,so had to do Six core papers,2 assignment tests for each 12 tests back to back. I promised myself i wouldn't let this happen again.Next semester i hope to do my regular lessons,as well as prepare for my entrance exams.Hopefully history wouldn't repeat itself!
