After a much hasty Durga Puja, and a rather busy one there; it is finally time for some serious, ghostly Halloween thinking! In an ideal world, I would love to own one of those delicious looking cottages with a lazy front porch and a lawn and a playful backyard, somewhere by the lake or the hill, far away from the city, where I would carve my homegrown pumpkins and line them along the driveway; but (snap..snap), I stay in a condo in the 73rd most expensive city in the world, which also never sleeps. So, this dream needs a good air bubble packing and a safe corner in the basement, untill we are ready for one. And we are working towards it. R, are you listening?
Disappointment is I didn’t even get a ‘perfectly Halloween orange’ pumpkin! But who cares. Here’s a local pumpkin I carved…and the stripes make it look all the more scary. This Halloween, we will try for some new crafts too and of course all boils and flows down here!
