September 2016 Calendar Printable10:00 AM
September is here!
For many of you, abroad this signals Fall and the arrival of Pumkin flavoured everything. For many in India this means the end of the monsoon and cooler days.
Unless you live in Mumbai where you'll wish for the rain to hang in there as long as it can because once the rains stop it becomes hot and humid as hell again.
By the end of the month, Summer has pretty much reloaded itself for close to two months over here.
What is very "Fall-sy" in India is the arrival of Apples straight from Kashmir and other Himalayan States.
We get apples year round but they are imported the rest of the year. In September and October, they are domestic.
I love apples, and in the honour of their return, I made one the object of my September Calendar page.
September also marks the real beginning of the Festive Season in Mumbai, with Ganesh Chaturthi coming this Monday.
Shops around town are already selling flowers, idols, lights and modaks (a rice flour sweet dumpling).
Then later in the month kids will be on holiday for the Muslim festival of Bakri-Eid and Ganesh's Visarjan during which Ganesh Idols are immersed into the water.
Have a happy September!
