With Karwa Chauth next week and Diwali following it shortly after, you could say that the festivities are just around the corner. It is the most anticipated time of the year during which, no matter where in the world they live, families, friends, acquaintances, neighbours and loved ones come together. Traditions are in abundance with sweet making, diya lighting, pujas and parties where everyone makes it a point to join in. In times like these, you mustn’t forget to notice that your home plays a starring role. With everyone and more coming under one roof, that roof better look presentable and ready for the festivities ahead.
