The first year of being married is filled with bittersweet moments. There’s such a profound happiness and joy in embracing a new life with your new family yet there’s a familiar emptiness about not being with your own parents and siblings. Here are some things every new bride thinks on her first ever Diwali away from home!
1. ‘I miss my parents!’
‘Today more than ever, I feel like waking up to the familiar sound of their beautiful voices’.
2. ‘I wonder who ma scolded about ‘Diwali ki safai’ in my messy room’.
‘I even miss that familiar threat about Lakshmi ji not blessing our home, thanks to my mess!’
3. ‘Some of these new traditions are fun, I have to admit’.
‘Now only if my folks could be here to experience them with me!’
