Kishori Shahane Vij – My mother used to make delicious til ke laddoo on this day. My fondest memories are my mother packing small packages of til laddoo for my teachers. I used to give them and take their blessings. We used to visit our relatives too and the fun part was how we used to check the quality of everyone’s ladoos. Exchanging of til ke laddoos is the ritual that I follow with family and friends. If I am shooting, I distribute these on the set. My son when he was growing up, we bought lots of kites every year. My husband is great at flying kites. He made it a point to teach my son too. But he makes sure to not fly them during the day when there are birds. We do a nice Pooja at home and then eat til ka laddoo and kazak. We wear black and yellow coloured clothes.
