Hey readers. My name is Arnavi Tiwari. Today I would love to tell you the feelings about a young girl known as Tara.
Tara feels that Diwali is a festival of lights. Each year, she used to go to her grandparents house. She used to make Rangolis and helped her grandmother in making sweets. Her grandfather would take her to buy crackers. Sometimes if Tara wanted a toy, her grandfather would buy it for her.
But this year, nothing was like those days due to Covid19. Almost all of Tara’s friends did not go to their grandparents home. Tara still enjoyed her Diwali with no disappointment. In fact, she did video call with her relative’s and did the Maha Lakshmi pooja on the video call. She felt that she was sitting with her grandparents doing the pooja.
At first she imagined that this Diwali would not be fun but she was totally wrong. She had a lot of fun. She thought of creating a greeting video to greet her full family. Sara and her father first wore a mask, used sanitizer and then wore gloves. After taking the precautions, they went to buy a few rangoli colors flowers. Then they brought a few flower garlands to put it on the door and then they got 7-8 deepaks etc for the pooja.
Tara and her mom shopped online shopping. She imagined that her dress will be a surprise gift for her. Will it be in her favorite color light teal/aqua? Will it be sparkly and will it be very beautiful? Tara was totally right!
In fact it was even better then she expected. Tara and her sister Pranavi wore the same dress on the day of Diwali. Tara and her family had a lot of fun.
From Tara and her family happy Diwali to you all.
