new year !!

can't believe its 12 days into the New Year!! its Lohri in india at this moment...i almost forgot and mummy wished me..i felt guilty...those small little festivals, customs that may sound so unbelievable but are fascinating..the stories behind them..those days when they mattered was a challenge to read the lohri poem word to word!! or hoi! when u got to eat halwa and matthi..or holi when u came back home in a state that ur parents wondered if you were really their kids?? the beat of the Dhol!! the joy of bhangra!! happiness in every moment!! its been a long time and the little girl in me sometimes yearns for those guava trees..the cycle ride..dairy milk chocolate...sand castles...roof top...the kites...popcorn and revadi...dreams turned into reality..but so much got left behind..nani's stories...nanaji's threats...driving to nainital..childhood treaures!! why does life give us only one chance??
