Usually I am fond of Deepavali right from the childhood as my name “DEEPA” relates with the Festival, moreover we get three to four new dress, the first one is a traditional dress may be a silk saree or silk pavadai (long skirt) for women and silk dhoti for men, the second one is a compulsory party wear and then the others may be of what is new in store or what is hot in trend. My mom and grand ma prepares sweets and savories for almost a week time. On the deepavali night we start bursting crackers, with care and safe. Not miss this but nowadays this had become the most essential – Television Programs with lots of live shows, recently released movies and so on. Also there will at least 4 to 5 new movies of top stars getting released and we use go for the movies on the next day.
