Day 41 Mon 31st Oct 2005
Back to Jalandhar and buy fireworks for Diwali.
I went to Jalandhar this morning to take my out back for alterations, the tailor said it would be ready for Thursday (fingers crossed with that one!). When we got into the Jalandhar there was a tractor-trolley that had broken down in the main road, I think the rear axel broke or something, it was just left I the middle of the road! It caused the most amount of congestion, but hey it happens - we're in India! On the way back we stopped of a Nakodar to buy fireworks for diwali, tomorrow I will see my very first Diwali in India. I am really looking forward to it, I have heard so much from people about how fantastic it is but I know not to build my hopes up too high! We spent about 2,000 rupees on fireworks, I thought that was quite a lot, but when we got back to Pind everyone was a bit disappointed ( no pleasing some people), there is only me, Soma and Thai in the house so I think we have more that enough! An old man came to the house early evening selling Divas. I bought 201 from him, every one else in Pind has put up coloured lights on their houses, I want to do things the traditional way! No lights for us just Divas. I've been thinking about home a lot today, just wondering what everyone is up to and how the Diwali preparations are going, I know the girls will be really exited.
