Durga Puja just came to an end and we have already sinked into preparations for Diwali. There’s this unstoppable chain of festivals that starts with Ganesh Chaturthi and continues till Christmas. Well, this time of the year has to be my favourite and we eagerly wait for it.

I’ve made them thrice this week and every time it just gets polished off in a matter of few hours. Continue reading
