After two years, this Diwali is a khushiyon wali: Donal Bisht

Donal Bisht is celebrating Diwali at her Noida home as she does every year, and she claims that it is her most anticipated time of the year. The actress claims that she always arranges her workload so that she can celebrate Diwali with her family. As she does every year, she wrapped her shoots this time around almost a week before the festival. "I feel like this is the best Diwali I've had in a while. Recently, one of my shows was released, and it has received a lot of positive feedback. A week before Diwali, I was able to finish the remaining tasks on my to-do list, and I arrived home in time for the festivities. I can finally sense that everyone in my immediate vicinity is enjoying a lavish celebration after two long years. Every home and market is so beautifully decorated, and you can almost feel the joy. After almost two years, this Diwali is finally what I would call a khushiyon wali Diwali, the actress claims.

How usually does her Diwali morning start? "I start by assisting my mother with the festive preparations and home decoration. I have been making rangoli at home on a regular basis since I was in class five. Another tradition I never miss is having my brother hang holiday lights while I decorate the entire house with diyas. Additionally, we use flowers to adorn our entrance, she adds.

"We receive marigold flowers and rose petals, and the scent of flowers permeates the entire house. Puja is performed at home after rangoli creation. After the puja is finished, we go to the temple and eat some traditional foods that my mother makes at home. I am expecting to gain at least two to three kilogrammes of weight because of all the feasting and indulging on all my favourite foods that my mother cooks because I simply can't help myself from bingeing during the holiday season. I don't even complain, either. And what about making it to those popular Diwali parties? Despite receiving numerous invitations to Diwali parties, the actress says she would rather stay at home. "I believe it is best to celebrate Diwali with your loved ones. I don't like playing cards or going out to parties on Diwali. Since I don't often get to see my family, I enjoy spending time with them on holidays.

She continues by saying it has been years since she last lit off fireworks for Diwali. "I think it's important for everyone to realise how much air pollution is caused by cracker-bursting, even if it's just for one night. There are a tonne of additional ways to observe the festival of lights.
