Bodhon to Bisharjan! Darshan to Dandiya : The Digital Way
“A man can be destroyed but not defeated.”
The human spirit is indomitable.
Even in times of despair it keeps the ray of hope alive.
Our biggest festival, Durga Puja/Navratri is here. We all deserve a break!
But its 2020 & things are different this year.
It is best not to venture out for Pandal-hopping, Eating out or Dandiya nights!
The COVID-19 threat is still looming large. #BeingSensible is the universal motto.
But who said we can’t enjoy at home?
With Digital tools let’s bring the party home!
Eat in not Eat out
Food is a big part of every festival. No celebration is complete without it.
The last few months have been hectic for all of us.
The lock-down period brought our inner ”chefs” out. We tried various recipes like Cakes, Dalgona Coffee, Momos and what not! – courtesy #YouTube.
But, to be honest, I am tired of it. Ain’t we all? 🙂
So, I utilized my Google research skills to find some off-beat options which will deliver safe and home-made food this Puja!
Check them out below!
