That time of the year - auspicious, colourful, and joyous - is close on the heels, and it is none other that Diwali that we are talking about.
This annual festal gala sends the entire country into a tizzy, and that too happily. Diwali is not only symbolic of the triumph of right over wrong, but it also catalyses unity and connectedness amongst all of us. We reach our near and dear ones to greet them with gifts, sweets, and well wishes. On the other hand, travellers from around the world as well as the non-resident Indians fly back to the country to spend some memorable time with their families amidst the festive days.
Diwali is, and possibly all and sundry will agree, almost a ritualistic occasion for heavy binging. We satiate the Indian tummy with a wide spectrum of exclusive Indian food with an undoubtedly staggering inclination towards the Indian sweets! From all the nooks and crannies of the country sweets sell like hot cakes, and it will be a crime to miss the most important ones! Indian sweets, in terms of preparation, ingredients, taste, and presentation vary from region to region. Take a look at some of the most popular Indian sweets, which will surely meet your eyes this year too. Be sure to not miss any, at least the ones that you have not had a bit of yet!
