In this new age, almost every house has one person who lives far far away for various reasons. Whether it is the software engineer son who is sent away for a two-year stint to the states or some random country in Europe or the rather simple daughter who gets married to one and tags along with the … Continue reading Home is definitely where the heart is
It is often said that Diwali is celebrated to enjoy the victory of Lord krishna over Narakasura (the demon god) while some other people believe it was only to welcome home Lord Rama after his 14 year exile.
