Even though there was no electricity in those days, the festival of lights was wonderful for me. The lamps came from the potter’s house. We used to go to the grinding machine and bring mustard and tea leaves. If there was a cow in the house, there was no shortage of ghee. Diwali is really a festival of togetherness. Get oil from somewhere, cotton for lamp and lamp from somewhere.
Having a tiled house left the Diwali wish unfulfilled

In childhood, there was a great desire to light a lamp on the roof of the house, but the lamp was extinguished due to the tiled roof.
