Among all the things that have changed with the world over the past decades, a majority of them just can’t be undone no matter how much we try. And one among those things is the Diwali celebration from the 90s.
Diwali has been around for eons, however, the way we celebrate the festival has taken a toll invariably. And the worst part? We can do nothing about it.
Although we won’t judge if everything that has changed is for good or bad but can surely try to recall the days form the 90s when celebrating the festival of light was an entirely different experience.
1. Social media boom has brought families closer, however, it has also parted us from the endearing concept of meeting and greeting on festive occasions.
2. The concept of gifting has also changed a lot. Son Papadi ka dibba and e-gifts have taken over the likes of gifting clothes that although wouldn’t fit us, but we enjoyed receiving the same.
3. No offense to chutputiya wali banduk, but this modern gun that fires and burst a shell in the sky is literally the best cracker.
4. Diyas are an integral part of Diwali and have witnessed a whole lot of change. Seen the electric diyas people put on their house? They might never go out of fuel, but what’s the fun until you don’t have run to ensure the traditional diya don’t blow away.
5. Thankfully, Diwali gathering is still a thing even it’s limited to one night and people playing cards and dancing instead of just talking about how beautiful life is.
6. I remember how exhausting, yet fun, it was to droll across shops with friends and families to shop for the best Diwali goodies. Today, it’s a matter of a couple of clicks.
7. Homemade sweets have also lost their charm as our life has got busier and have been replaced by market sweets which are awesome but lack that desi ghee ki Khushboo.
8. Days are gone when we don’t have to worry about pollution being the fun spoiler. Hence promoting green and clean Diwali.
9. With globalization, the definition of decoration has changed.
Happy Diwali Peeps!!
