It's that time of the year again

Flash back:

Some 10-15 years ago, and before that too.

21 days of vacation.

21 days of watching television for time unlimited, playing cricket, going for a picnic to a nearby beach, loving that visit the native place, teasing cousins, fighting and making up, falling down and getting hurt, enjoying fireworks till late in the night, relishing loads of sweets...

And hating just one thing - Diwali vacation homework!

And now:

The vacation has filtered down to just 2-3 days.

2-3 days of taking rest, visiting select friends, avoiding many visits, a quick shopping spree, hating late fireworks that spoil your sleep, cursing those sweets that spoil your diet plans…

Those 21 days might not come back. Perhaps even these 2-3 days, a few years down the line, when we become all the more busy.

Let’s enjoy this festive season to the fullest. Seems like bhaashanbaazi or as one of my close friends would say, “life ka funda”, but think about it. These 2-3 days will take another year to return!

Have a Happy Diwali, full of fireworks that mesmerise us, complete with friends and family, the ones who care for us and full of sweets that someone makes with love (forget diet for once yaar!)
