Pre-Navaratri

_MG_5307-2

Today after the Saturday test at evening class. I ran home and changed for my friend’s graduation ceremony. It being boring I again dashed back to home and changed for the Pre-Navaratri ( I was not in mood though I dressed up). I love to get dressed up for Navaratri. I just love this attire. Now it was time to roll on the floor.

Photograph by my Papa. Thank you Papa this really is an awesome catch.

Soothing smell of mud, water from pot, the open sky,  grass grown knee heights, field full of crops and fulfillment of being at home is what makes it a perfect place.

The Giant Wheel! – In my native language Gujarati we call it Chakdol. Me and my friends were standing outside the gate of fun park near ticket window. Thinking whether to go inside or not. Nostalgia and eagerness dragged us inside. After stepping inside we thought of having a quick disciplinary tour and come out. But CRAZY KIDS within us were waiting to jump out and play out loud…….. Few moments later we realized that few moments ago we were kids. Why grow up ???
