It’s that time of the year in India that is synonymous with ghee-laden motichoor laddoos and kaju katlis, flickering flames from earthen diyas, sparklers and crackers, and dazzling traditional wear. But, most importantly, it’s a time for families to come together!
The familiar and comforting sounds of laughter and happy conversations that come when the entire family comes together is what makes Diwali a festival that everyone looks forward to.
However, the warm glow and glitter of Diwali, doesn’t feel the same to everyone. Many people move away from home or just get so caught up in their professional duties, which makes it impossible to spend the festival at home.
That’s when we have friends to fall back upon. Friends who have become family. And, they bring the happiness that our families do. Be it deep cleaning the rented single-bedroom apartment, decorating the balcony with fairy lights, making rangolis or laddoos by watching YouTube videos, many of us celebrate Diwali in ways; new and old. But what matters is doing all this with the same warmth and love, with our #FriendsWaliFamily.
So, what if you are pulling an all-nighter the night before Diwali for an investor pitch, you also have colleagues who have invited you over for a delicious Diwali dinner. What if you don’t have a long enough break to go back to your hometown, you have friends who are there to create a home away from home for you.
