Diwali is all about following traditions and rituals. In Diwali we try to re-do the chores as per our ancestors to preserve the tradition. The tradition though being followed step-by-step, still seems getting transitioned from the way our ancestor celebrated it to the way we do. I remember the childhood days, when we used to clean our home weeks in advance, decorate it with earthen bulbs (diyas) and flowers, making rangoli, eating home-made delicacies including mouth-watering ladoos and getting dressed in traditional attire. The way we celebrated Diwali has changed its form over the years but the zeal continues. With the availability of fancy lights, earthen bulbs seem to have lost their supremacy, but the flowers, rangoli, home-made delicacies and mouth-watering ladoos still maintain their place.
Back then, the most obvious traditional dress was kurta-payzama. Be it due to lack of availability of good options to look trendy yet traditional or be it the negligence of customers. But now, with the blooming of online market (e-commerce), a large variety of merchandise is available to choose from suiting every festival. Online shopping giants like Jabong has made it easier for people to look classy and trendy in puja celebration by offering a great variety of apparels at unmatched price. A wide range spanning ethnic wear, Kurta-Payzama, Indo-western, etc. suiting the festival is made available at click of mouse.
I always think wearing traditional attire is the essence of Indian culture and it multiplies the joy manifold. My all-time favourite is kurta payzama #traditionmyway. This Diwali, I was able to dress myself uniquely choosing from the wide range of apparels available from Jabong. The one I loved is
Get traditional. Be You!
