Akshara had a very long Diwali vacation. So, the build up to Diwali was quite slow. But, with Navratri very close to Diwali, she was kept occupied by Vidhya. Akshara even painted her own diyas wihout making much of a mess.
Diwali day itself was fun with lot of sweets and the bursting of crackers with friends. She was a bit apprehensive about the sparklers at the start, but later started enjoying it and couldn’t have enough of them.
