Celebrations are over birthday went good, then came Diwali, I am not sure what words to use to describe the fun or good time , so I will do the next best I can do, Put some pictures, I had a couple of videos taken but they are too big to be put here, hence just some pictures.
Some of the Pictures are also an after thought as you can see, When we were eating or having a bit of fun, No one remembered to take the pics.

  1. WOW – those pictures suggests to me that went out on a full bash – do you remember any of it? Congratulations on all rounds

  3. Zephyr says:

    That sure must have been some party! And the fireworks. Where did you have them? The jalebis look so yummy 🙂

  4. KP says:

    Bikram, Veerji.. Thank you for the lovely evening .. You are one person who is such a humble man.. Now I regret not meeting you for all these years..

    India yaad aa gaya paaji.. God bless you brother , Be like this always ..

    Thanks for sending me your blog Id, will keep visiting now

    PS:- what is new years plan….

    • Paaji thank you so much.. Now you are trying ot put me on a pedestal here , I am not that good , Ask a few bloggers out there they will vouch how bad and MEAN I am , I will send you the links to have a look 🙂 all that glitters is not always gold Bai ji 🙂

      new year plan tuhade naal hi hai, DASO anything and everything 🙂

  5. Always Happy says:

  6. MomWithaDot says:

    That was one Patakha party eh?! As they say, these pictures speak a 1000 words
    All the guys in our family are crazy about that Single Malt. During our Scotland days, it was a given that we’d carry them home every trip. Add slurpalicious Jalebis and Firecrackers – THAT’s Diwali !

    • YEah , I could not have been able to describe with words..

      YEah single malt is good, I believe that if we have to drink poison then might as well drink one of STANDARD and a expensive one he he he he .. and glenfidditch is my favourite toooo

  7. Visha says:

    mast, mast, jabardast 😀

    Was the food store bought? It looks yummy 😛

    I can already imagine your New Year’s eve plan 😉

    • THank you so much.. ha ha ha actually you said the right thing, this was the first time I had so many people at my place so I think i ordered too much, there is still so much left over after 2 days still, I had to give some to neaighbours .. But I know for next time now how much to order … 🙂

      new years hopefully will be again good, you are most welcome if you come over to uk 🙂

  12. Punam J R says:

    Hi Bikram.. you seriously burnt all those fireworks?? They look too good to be true.. 🙂
    Great good.. and all that food and drinks.. serious partying haan? Looks like you have had a party after ages..!!! I hope you had some great fun. And when I saw the jalebi pics, i thought, do u seriously get jalebis and samose in UK?? My favourite pick will always be samose.. Next time, don’t have samose without sharing with me.. not happy about it now.

    • yes seriously burnt those, they are not that much, they are just scattered thats why they look too much..

      yes after ages for sure as everyone is busy busy always so get all together is not a mean task. Yes we have indian shops and you get everything one wants , the only think is its expensive ..

      and when you come samose will be waiting for you for sure 🙂

    • I did enjoy a lot , after ages we had all met up .. Thank you so much I try to keep happy but things happen.. and I am sure you wont like my next post also because its not a happy one.. but has to be done 🙂

  32. Ashwathy says:

    Glad to see that being far away from India does not dampen your spirit of celebrations! 😀

    Err… just to check. Do you believe in blasting bombs – the super loud crackers? Then I will stay far away from you (for Diwali)! Not too fond of those 😐

    • Thankfully they havenot 🙂

      no We did not buy any loud banging ones, all were more on Light and barragges , which made a lovely lightenings in the sky , and different colors ..

      so dont worry come over 🙂
