“Most individuals choose to remain dwelling for Diwali.” Whereas this may need been true up to now, issues positive are altering. I spent Diwali 2021 at my home-away-from-home, Narendra Bhawan at Bikaner. Having been there a bunch of occasions – to have fun bringing within the New Yr, to have fun Holi and a number of other time, simply to chill out and unwind after which, generally, to occasion. Had not but visited for Diwali, so, there I used to be! It was stunning.
Sharing some images of a few of my favorite spots on the resort, in addition to preparations for Diwali and the Diwali evening occasion.
It simply so occurs, that the central courtyard of the resort, is known as the Diwali Chowk. Naturally, that was the situation for kicking off the Diwali festivities. Beginning with a puja with the GM Mr. Nitin Sud and carrying on upstairs, for a celebration by the pool.
Bikaner was hotter than Delhi / Gurgaon. I wore a variety of gold – which is fully in contrast to me – and I even appreciated how the look got here collectively. A stunning time – together with telephone calls again dwelling to chatter with the household about lacking Diwali within the dwelling metropolis and the way unhealthy the air pollution there was! Who needs to be in Delhi when the air is poison, which it’s throughout Diwali season.
Now for some images of a few of my favorite corners on the resort.
I even discovered one thing hidden behind curtains, that I had not seen beforehand – these stunning glass baubles – they appear like custard apples to me.
A number of black and white photos.
An entire load of self portraits as a result of I needed to have fun ME. I had been going by a section of feeling horrible about myself – low self-worth and low vanity and NB appears to deliver out the most effective in me, so I felt a renewed sense of, “I’m okay.” Needed to be documented.
And at last, sunsets on the pool. They signify a means of claiming goodbye to the resort, for me. “Till subsequent time.”
