My favorite season is finally here. The last 3 months of the year is always dear to me because there is a festive feel in the air. Its that time when you bring out warmer clothes, pick out festive dressing and watch romantic movies snuggled up in your blankets. Its that time when another year comes to an end bringing cheer with it. A retrospective time to relax and drink warm cups of hot chocolates. Everyone’s in a happier mood. Its just the opposite to the beginning of the year when everyone’s serious, making plans.
If I had to choose a favorite Indian festival, I would pick Diwali in a heartbeat. I would anticipate Diwali for weeks as a kid counting off days on the calendar. Fire crackers and sweets would excite me the most back then. I would challenge myself to burst the loudest of bombs and be proud of myself when I did. I would feel even prouder if my family ended up bursting the largest moola of crackers on my street. I was a child, I never had a care in the world, least of all the environment. Times were different back then.
As I have grown up over the years and have become conscious of our atmosphere, I have stopped lighting crackers and instead spend my time decorating the house, meeting family and friends and picking out the best festive clothing that I can get my hands on. Diwali is the time when you have to look your ethnic best after all. This silk anarkali suit from Soch is such a perfect ensemble for your Diwali celebrations. Its yellow and for me personally, yellow represents the color of light, its the essence of this festival. The anarkali is long and flowy and sweeps the floor when you wear it. It makes me feel so desi pretty and I absolutely love that.
I hope you have a fantastic Diwali and great end to your year. BTW is it weird that Diwali and Halloween are on the same day?
