The Atlantic‘s InFocus, my favorite photojournal, has posted their yearly collection of Diwali photos from around the world:
(Some of the captions are a little… off. For example, I don’t know anyone who worships account books or iPads, but I know of several who ask for Lakshmi’s blessings by way of those objects during Lakshmi puja. Ah, well. Best to take them with a grain of salt and focus on the lovely photography.)
Loads of us still have quite a lot of time left to celebrate, but it’s nice seeing how other folks spend their time.
I think my favorite photo is the one of all the people crowded into a train in their holiday finery as they travel home to celebrate with their families.
Jai Lakshmi Mata Di!
