This time last year I was living in Bangalore.

Mangammampallaya street, Bommanahalli”.

I will never forget my struggle and countless efforts to remember and pronounce that. The countless times my, “Mana-gana-plyaa” and “Booom-naa-h’lee” were laughed at and questioned on my exciting first bus trips and auto adventures in Bengaluru.

That was the First Diwali i had celebrated since my kindergarten years. And it was fun!
