It is Back to School Time

School started yesterday and I am back feeling like being hit by an express train. It will take a few days, maybe couple of weeks to get used to the new rigor, but I will get there....

Right now I feel like this :)

Sankranti Comes every year

Sankranti or Pongal popularly known as the harvest festival in India has come and gone. It was probably celebrated with pomp and show in parts of India. I have no idea what happened, in fact I almost forgot the festival, I was at work. Here in America unless you are closely connected to the Indian Hindu community it is very easy to miss our festivals and cultural events. I am one of those non-temple Hindus and I am not connected to any Hindu community or group hence I miss most of the festivals.

I truly miss the festivals that I reluctantly celebrated in India. Now having gone without celebrating most festivals for the past 4 years, I wish I had gotten involved more seriously when I was in India. I wonder if the time will ever come again when I will be actually celebrating all the festivals in my life.... only time can answer this question.
