    I guess it’s time for you to use watermark using some photo editing software on every image that you use on your blog 🙂

    • Anu, Yes Deepavali marundhu made by the marundhu expert, my mom. She got all the ingredients from India.

      As for the crackers, got them during July 4th on the way from Yosemite. Also there is a nearby chinese store that sells some harmless crackers as well.
