We lived in a sort of joint family when I was small. My grandfather lived in another city but he would visit us with my grandmother for one half of the week.  My uncle and aunts lived with us till they got married. In another huge house (haveli) nearby, my grandfather’s brothers lived with their families. Since we had joint business and celebrated all festivals and functions together, it was a joint family.                        Since everyone would be busy all week, menfolk leaving for work and children leaving for school/college, Sunday was a very relaxed day. The breakfast of puri-aloo (fried chapattis and potato vegetable) would be ordered from outside and whenever anyone felt hungry could eat it. Mutton dish would be prepared by the menfolk outside the kitchen (ordinarily the menfolk were waited hand and foot but the women did not partake non-veg. or even cook it).                                                                                                                                             Our lives are lived as per rituals from waking up in the morning,bathing, dressing-up, eating,cooking, praying, celebrating festivals and so on.                                                                                                                       DSCN1644Burning of effigies of  the learned  Ravan, the ten-headed demon king of the golden Lanka, Meghnath, his son and Kumbhkaran, his brother on Vijayadashmi, to celebrate the victory of good over evil.
