I really like all these little dots of light that line the steps.

@By Marie: Thank you Marie.. I relaised I should have switched off the tube light before I took a shot! The lamps would have come out better ! It was a bit too late !

@grouser: Ha ha ha !!! If there is one festival I am allergic to, it is the Holi .." Coulour Festival" I just hate getting colours on my face !! I don't ever open the door on this day!! Mercifully, here in our apartment no one plays Holi...Most are oldies :)))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))and out of the 14 apartments, only the people next door are Punjabis and they go off to their kids' place the day before and we are saved the ordeal ! The rest..two Christians and the rest 10 are of Islamic origin !!!..So there's no "Colour phobia " here !!

@grouser: Gosh !! Hope you were able to recognise the apparition in your mirror !!!! Ugh ! I sort of despise this festival...May be I am ANTISOCIAL ? I don't know!!!
