October Festivals in India and Wombat day

October has been kind so far, not without the allergies and flu’s, but kind and with many reasons to celebrate. The Bengali‘s  are gearing up for Durga puja ( celebrating goddess Durga‘s victory over the evil demon Mahishasur) others are decorating pandals for RamaNavmi ( the period when Lord Ram ( Ramayana) killed The king of demons Ravana ( lot of cultures celebrate differently and have a slightly different versions).

Both are 10 days of grand celebrations, Festival of colours, food, people of streets, tons of shopping  and laughter..but food comes first.
And If you thought Indian food is all about curries then think again..
Go for Luchi and Kosha mangsho, Macher chop, Mochar ghonto, Devils chop, Patishapta, Rashogulla, Payesh, Shondesh …..oh I can go one and this will be a very big post.
We Bengali’s are known for our passion for Food,Songs,Dance and Books… Next time you want to try Indian food, ask for some Gujarati/ Bengali/South Indian  sweets and savouries, trust me you will forget the curries.
But October this year has given me one more reason to be happy, 22nd of this month is World Wombat day and its a big day not just for my lovely friends the Wombies from Wombania.com  but all of us part Wombies too :)
It will be  day of fun, humour, chocolates, marshmallows, spams, double chocolates, triple chocolates, death by chocolates, crazychoco delights and love, in short everything that can make this world a better place.
So while Mrs.Bee stings everybody in town,
Mr.Grr never stops finding fault every adjective,verb and noun
Tom and Brady hallucinate being in star wars
& Peter and Mash dream and fantasize about turbo power flying cars,
Sarah prays day and night for a magical moonstone
And Jason spends whole day perfecting macaroons and scones
Humpty Dumpty enjoy a  fight between werewolves and vampires
and Doomsday Preppers get ready for the alien attacks  on the human empire
while politicians keep making promises trying to win the polls
and everything else is hacked every now and then by the  trolls
let us for this one day forget everything and enjoy the day with chocolates and Wombats.
I made this short promotional teaser for those who want to know more,  its  a 2 minute clip so please do watch it.and do not forget to visit the wombies and book your seat( its free )
I surf around in wombie land even when it is not a cartoon day,there is so much fun. And if you don’t see me there then know that there is something seriously wrong on my side. Being the extremely considerate blogger that I am I  have a wombie absent chart prepared for you.
This will tell you why I may be missing from all the wombania fun.
  1. Didn’t comment on wombie cartoon once- i am sick
  2. Missed the second cartoon too- very very sick
  3. what!!!! not there for the 3rd cartoon :shock: –  kidnapped..send a search party guys!
  4. nope didnt show up for the fourth time in a row- read prayers for my departed soul ( damn she was a great soul, Why god why)
  5. sudden come back after being absent for a long interval- released from jail ( hey i aint no saint )
so now you know every thing about everything, do visit Wombania on 22nd for fun and try a different Indian cuisine next time :)
wish you all a lovely weekend :)

Like the earth moves…

Tonight when you look at the sky
may be you will see the moon may be not
may be the twinkles will smile
or it will be one of those nights
when the sky wears a black hood
no matter what you see
however gloomy or brighter the sky
dont forget even for a second
happy or sad
the sky will change
it is the very nature of earth
it keeps moving
and as long as it keeps moving
it allows it self to see another day
another full moon night
another spring
so when you look outside
and it is day on your side
bright sunny day
or threatning like a dark evil knight
clear or in doubt
happy or grim reflecting your mood
enjoy if you can this today or tonight
But flow with it
live in this moment
and move, keep walking
for moving is the very nature of earth
and YOU are such a lovely part of it .
