This year’s Deepavali /Diwali ( festival of lights) around corner, it is on November 13th. When we are young appa would get us new clothes, crackers and sweets for Deepavali/Diwali. While amma will be busy cooking in the kitchen, with her own treats for us. If you want to know 10 reasons to celebrate Diwali, take a look at this link.
