Ive spent my last few Diwalis away from home - but this year is probably the worst one so far: This time Im alone... and unwell.
Ridden with multiple Kidney Stones, Bad Skin rashes (on account of numerous jabs with needles so as to get saline drips into the required blood vessels) and of course the back ache (mainly due to mental and physical stress)
As I prepare to spend my Diwali morning at the hospital, getting tested for god knows what now, my spirit however is not as down and out as it should be.
Thank god for that Diwali spirit which is keeping me going. I wonder if it's all in the mind - or if the spirit of Diwali is something real and alive.
God, on this Diwali, I pray you give me enough physical strength to buy Diyas (or Tea Candles or whatever else I can find here) and light my house up!
Miss you ma, pa.
Would have been great to see home - warm with light and love :)
And the fooooood! Oho!
Wish you all a very Happy Diwali!!
