How will you spend Diwali?

October 04, 2006

Diwali is just around the corner. In a few more days we will be pulling down our boxes of diyas, sorting out our decorations and planning the sweets or farsan/namkeen that needs to be prepared. There are firecrackers to be bought, plus the new clothes...

You can feel the festive atmosphere all around already. And, despite the onslaught of modernity, festivals represent our return to tradition, and Diwali is all about tradition and legend.

What are your plans? Where and how will you be spending this Festival of Lights? What will you be cooking for Diwali? How will you bring in Diwali that is celebrated all over India?

Tell us all about your Diwali plans.
