Back after a while

Good morning friends,at last I am back from a break .This is my first post after returning home.We returned to the city when the city was beaming with the festive mood and lights.after all its the Durga puja time,the largest festival of the Bengali's.Durga Puja is like a giant carnival and the entire city celebrate it  by visiting the puja pandals, eating finger foods sold by the street vendors and buying souvenirs.The city takes a totally different colour especially during this time of the year.Its lights every where ,passions start pouring out, creativity flourishes ,people are out on the streets dressed in their fineries in the honour of ma Durga even defying the extremely hot and humid weather.Me being a Bengali  is no exception.So ever returning from USA was extremely busy to sit down and write something.Moreover due to the festivals there was holidays prevailing and we were left with no Internet connections.It is only last week that we got the connection.Thank god that it was during puja that I was with out the net ,otherwise I don't know how I could have spent the time.
