When I was a lit­tle girl, my par­ents used to buy us new clothes each year on Di­wali. This was the only time we (my brother and I) got new clothes apart from our re­spec­tive birth­days. This was quiet un­like the

ex­trav­a­gance and ma­te­ri­al­ism nowa­days where chil­dren are flooded with gifts year round. So, what­ever big or small gift we re­ceived on Di­wali, it was hap­pily cher­ished by us year long. Ta­nia Khu­rana
