Happy Diwali!

I saw people getting invites to write at the Chai ki Dukaan and secretly hoped for a day when I'd get the invite too. My 'corny and cliched' initiative displayed below worked, and here I am. :D

Here's wishing all the visitors of Chai ki Dukaan a safe and joyous Diwali. Hope you don't burst crackers. And make up for it all by eating lots of mithai. :D


  1. Can I comment on my own post? :P

    I will!

    You have some real nice friends, Prashant. Be nice to them. And better appreciate their sense of style. They're smart people.

    Chalo... happy diwali bhi! Enjoy!

    wish you and every one else here a diwali filled with sweetness (recipe for which is given already in this post )...and may we all overcome our lower nature...and for the rest of the year shine on with inner beauty, harmony...and good will....

  9. I was a bit confused when my reader said there's a new post on Chai ki dukaan written by Arbee! But then, I remember reading the 'corny and cliched' word, so it all makes sense now.

    And yes... Mithai! Trust me to clean up all the stuff at home. Hope you guys get to do that too, and watch your weight at the same time :P

    Happppppy Diwali!

    Laddoo to mil hi jayenge, I'm sure. It's the evergreen mithai! :-)
