    I miss moti choor ladoo now – not the big hard ones, but the more crumbly variety with a pistachio topping. A bit of besan or pista barfi wouldn’t go amiss either, provided it isn’t too sweet!

    Rumbold, I feel for you. I bet it’s ON FIYAH near you, and near me it would be even worse, haha! Good luck sleeping tonight. :-D

    I miss Southall, especially at this time of year. Have a good one!

    You kids from across the pond get fireworks on Diwali? All we get Stateside are stale gulab jaman and the occasional disconcerting gaze from a lecherous auntie/uncle.

    As if gulab jaman weren’t suggestive enough, it’s almost impossible to partake in their syrupy, spherical goodness after hearing from lecher-uncle: “Hullo beti, you have grown… [silence]… I’m growing right now just looking at you.”

    Er…

    Poonjabi, that’s a dodgy uncle you have! Stay away from him…Happy Diwali

  19. Shamit — on 29th October, 2008 at 1:11 pm  

    happy belated diwali to everyone
