Saal Mubarak and Happy Diwali

Wishing you a Diwali that brings happiness, prosperity, and joy to you and all your family.

We can’t be together as a family to celebrate Diwali this year. Besides the need to physically isolate because of the global pandemic, we lost an elder this year. Bhavna’s Guujurati family Hindu religious practices require a year of mourning; we’re forgoing the usual festivities.

So I’m taking a photographic journey down memory lane. These photographs are in no particular order, but they are from all the past Diwali celebrations from as far back as I can find.
