For me the festival is not just a one dayaffair, it all starts days in advance with lots of kaju barfi, card parties and bright Indian wear. This tradition has been followed since my sister and I were in our hometown Kolkata. Without the playing cards bit. We would gather together with our family, cousins and friends and eat puri, chole, halwa and just enjoy our time together.
Even now Akshay and I always manage to have a fun gathering and enjoy our two days of holiday. To start feeling festive and to get into the groove of Diwali I wore a kurta everyday for three days till the main days of the festival.
What I did realise was that all my kurtas are a shade of blue. Pretty much every single one of them.
Here comes another one.
Well this year I decided to go buy myself something pink instead.
I love diya’s and I have been collecting some really pretty ones. Looking forward to lighting them up. Hope you have a great Diwali too!
