Dry fruit chikki


By birth, I am a Bengali; by heart, I am a die-hard fan of Punjabis. I adore their attitude to laugh at themselves or their ways to celebrate with an open heart or their food. Having spent the golden period of my life in Delhi, I got to spend a lot of with Punjabis, and been part of their celebrations. On the day of Lohri today, I am thousands of miles away, but I’ve found my own way to celebrate Lohri. Wish a very Happy Lohri to my friends!
