It's that time of the year where everything is at its brightest best! Yes, we are talking about Diwali- the festival of lights! From gorging on some lip-smacking mithas, shopping, bursting fireworks to some poker sessions with near and dear ones, the festive season brings everyone closer as sorrows and rivalry are forgotten.
Even our Bollywood celebrities make sure that they take out some time from their busy schedule and let their hair down. Just like us, even they have many fond childhood memories associated with this festival.
Here's what some of them shared with us..
"My fondest Diwali memory will always be soaking the Miththi ke diye with my mother, putting them out to dry in the sun and pouring oil, rolling cotton wicks and placing them in each diya carefully... laughing and chattering and being drawn in by the beauty that lose small earthen lights would bring to our home each year. My mom would always use this time of year to make my name a celebration and remind me of the symbolism of how even a small flame can add a gentle glow to a dark space... the flame of hope."
"I'll always remember how excited I used to get decorating the house with lights and attempting to make rangoli designs (which almost never turned out right!) But most exciting was dressing up every year for the school Diwali party."
"We burst a lot of fire crackers as kids. Indulged in great food and in all just amazing and precious Family time together!"
"I remember as a kid burning a Diwali bomb in my Hand and then throwing it in the air ... I almost got injured , it was then that I realised that it was stupid , dangerous and really not needed ."
