Hello lovely people! How are you doing today? A very Happy Dussehra to all of you. What are your plans for the evening? I am going to have my family over for dinner so I intend to spend the entire evening cooking for them and feasting afterwards.
Every year on Dussehra my Dada (paternal grandfather) would get steaming jalebis for everyone. When he passed away my dad started doing it for us. There wasn’t any logic or religious reason behind it but soon it became a family tradition. After I got married I started doing the same:) and now we can’t imagine Dussehra without a plateful of these crispy sticky spirals dunked in sugar syrup! Yum!
So this evening I have requested my dad to get them for us while I have made a tub of creamy vanilla ice cream at home to go with it. Food, family and tealights...
No festival is complete without tealights which brings me to the third giveaway of the week. Trust me you are going to fall in love with this one.
The giveaway is courtesy Afday. An online store that believes in the philosophy that art is for everyone and for everyday. I like that :)

Wow! I am loving all the
“We believe that “Art” is present in and around our lives in many forms. A statue can be a piece of art and a key ring too can be a piece of art. As they say, it all lies in the eyes of the beholder.We also think that Indian designers and craftsmen - professionals and amateurs are creating the widest and most unique range of Art. This needs to be brought in front of the entire world. It is also time that we make this easily accessible and in a format which is convenient.These thoughts have resulted in creation of Art for Everyday abbreviated as Afday.com".
The last date to participate is 17th October'11 midnight IST. I will announce the winner on the 18th of October’11 so that you get your gifts just in time for Diwali!
Good luck and see you tomorrow for the 4th giveaway.
