    Pickled Politics would like to wish all our Hindus and Sikhs a happy Diwali. The fireworks certainly started near me last night.

      Sweets, can’t remember their names but I love the green ones! :D

      Happy Diwali all!

      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

    11. Gege — on 28th October, 2008 at 6:40 pm  

      thanks rumbold!

      Happy Diwali everyone! Damnit i wish i was in Leicester for Diwali :( .

    13. sarah — on 29th October, 2008 at 12:33 am  

      Happy Divali to all who celebrated!

    14. douglas clark — on 29th October, 2008 at 1:07 am  

      Oh! That explains the early fireworks. Best wishes.

      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.”

    17. Leon — on 29th October, 2008 at 11:43 am  

      Er…

    18. Hermes123 — on 29th October, 2008 at 12:25 pm  

      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

      And greetings to the Jains too!
