That is how we celebrated Diwali — my owner's family and the only foreigner left in the guesthouse apart from me. The doors are wide open — we are waiting for Lakshmi to come. As soon as it got dark the daughter-in-law went to paint Lakshmi's footprints on the steps and the sons lit and arranged the candles everywhere around the house so that Lakshmi could see where to go. I don't know though how Lakshmi is not afraid of all these crackers. There are heaps of the paper from them everywhere in the morning.
