Doston Wali Diwali: 14 Bomb-astic Ways To Rock This Diwali With Your Roomies

Aren’t you super excited with the buzz of Diwali whirring all about? It is time for some noise, fireworks, and of course lip-smacking food. Diwali is all about bringing happiness, sharing it with family and friends. But if you are miles away from your beloved family, don’t feel too low- because your roomies can make it roomy… err… hom-ey for you too!

Here’s how:

1. Decking it up

Decorating the house with flowers, décor products, candles, and other accessories enhance the atmosphere. As you are unavailable to participate actively at home, the best thing that you can do is by decorating your room with your friends and bringing a bit of home where you stay.

2. Gifting delights

Gifts are a perfect way to surprise your loved ones for the festival. All you need is an excellent idea! Create one yourself or if that’s too much, how about surprising your peeps with some quirky choices?

3. Splurge on shopping

4. Lazy bums

I am a misfit software engineer who left her work in the corporate world to pursue the insatiable quest to write. A freelance worker by the day, I choose to dream with eyes open wide. I have conversations with myself where I talk of the possibilities that life can hold. Too many wishes made on empty starless nights ensure that there are various dreams yet to be lived. I am working my way as I am on a quest to find myself. The greatest journeys are indeed the ones that lie within. I am yet to live my story because right now, the book is full of too many apostrophes and too many commas. The words are jumbled until the right one fits the puzzle. I don't believe in perfection because too many times, it is imperfection which paints the perfect story. I am verbose and I aim at living life in full swing until a speed breaker curbs the tantalizing pace with which I wish to conquer the dreams that would otherwise be too big for the not-so-tiny shoes I wear. Blessed with a lot of chubby fat, I love going the extra mile to conquer my extra dreams with an extra advice after all, we all love a little extra. A die-hard shopaholic, you can often find me laughing on serious stuff inappropriately at wrong times (unintentionally).
