We celebrated Diwali at Navkshitij with usual enthusiasm. With the help of caregivers, our Friends made a nice fort, which is the speciality of Maharashtra.
On October 23, we had a special Diwali breakfast of Ladoo, Chakali, Karanji, Chivada and Shankarpali. Well-wisher Sudha Sharma and her friends have been sponsoring the Diwali breakfast for the past many years. In the evening, we had a Diwali party with firecrackers and delicious food before many of our Friends went home to celebrate Diwali with their families.
Ten Friends remained at Navkshitij during Diwali. They were not alone. They celebrated the main days of Diwali with my colleagues and their families. Every day, well-wishers dropped by to wish them, give them Diwali gifts, and share some sweets.
