Diwali is behind us now by more than 10 days but still the sweets from Diwali is freely available at home. It tempts you very much and I have literally gone on a binge eating these Diwali sweets for the last 2 weeks. In my young age, I was very fond of sweets and still carry the notorious reputation of "stealing and eating sweets" at home. Even now, whenever I meet my aunts or uncles, they enquire about my love for sweets. My Grandma always had a soft corner for me and used to go to her when she distributes the sweets for one more round of helping and she always obliged. I used to talk nicely to my siblings and lure them to give me a share from theirs. That was the level of craziness I had for sweets.
But over the last few years, the urge to eat sweets have been diminishing, thanks to strict restrictions at home and realisation that it is not good. I have been denying myself much of sweets for the last 3 years or so but this year I have gone out all the way eating sweets.
My resolution on sweets have gone for a toss and on a daily basis I am either eating an Athirasam or laddu or badushah(!). So much of sweets.. added to that is "mixture" for "rasam" sadam. True it tastes divine when you eat but you have to really sweat it out in the gym, else you had it.
Oh God, please get these Diwali sweets completed fast..
