Cyclone Hudhud might have cast its shadow on the Deepavali Celebrations in Visakhapatnam, but had only partial impact in Vijayawada on Thursday. People scaled down the level of celebrations, but there were crackers, rockets, sparklers and lamps lighting up the night sky on the concrete jungle. A view from Indrakeeladri was fantastic and every street lit up bright and colourful with groups of children and adults coming out to burst crackers. The Hindu photographers Ch. Vijaya Bhaskar and V. Raju captured a few glimpses of the festivities.
