With Di­wali a few days away, tell us about your favourite mem­o­ries of the fes­ti­val.

Friday - - Leisure Food -

I re­mem­ber the ex­cit­ing build-up weeks in ad­vance as my mother thought of a menu and dec­o­ra­tion as she al­ways in­vited peo­ple over for Di­wali.

My par­ents al­ways made the day seem mag­i­cal with ev­ery­one dress­ing up, food be­ing made and the ta­ble be­ing laid and dec­o­rated with lovely flow­ers. Those childhood mem­o­ries be­came my ref­er­ence point when I moved out of my par­ents’ home and started cel­e­brat­ing the fes­ti­val at my own place.
