I hope whether you are in India or elsewhere in the world celebrating Diwali, that it’s a happy one for you, your family and friends!
Last year, I was on top of the roof of our India pied-à-terre on the night of Diwali, capturing video of the booming fireworks 360 degrees all the way around us. So exciting! Because we were up on a tall roof, we had a clear view all around. It was my first time in India on Diwali. I will post some videos later to show you the fireworks.
For now, this is “Lovers playing with fireworks.” A painting on paper circa 1800 from the British Museum.
