HYDERABAD: Diwali has arrived and our tables are set for the various celebrations and games that are synonymous with the holiday. After all the effort of cleaning and decorating the house and the countless chores involved, everyone needs to have fun and what better than fun celebrations.

For garba choreographer and entrepreneur Bina Mehta, Diwali is a festival of happiness and light accompanied by a variety of foods and delicacies. “Families get together and enjoy playing different types of games like musical chairs, antakshari, cards, silly charades and karaoke,” Bina says. Agreeing with Bina, fashion designer Vinita Pittie said, “People love playing various card games and having happy conversations in the process. Kids, on the other hand, love their noisy crackers.

We illuminated our house with the beautiful light of several local earthen diyas,” says Vinita. According to Sushila Bokadia, an entrepreneur, Diwali is one of the happiest and most auspicious festivals. “There are lots of things to do on Diwali like pooja, handing out sweets, decorating the house with lights and rangoli. But my family’s most favorite thing on Diwali is when we all sit together and play games. We play poker, streak, charades, antakshari, ludo – we spend quality time together.

We start playing after dinner and the fireworks until late at night. Even though it’s normal to win and lose in a game, we all try to cheat in a fun way and get caught, but it makes the experience more enjoyable,” she shares. There are only family card games on Diwali for Ajitha Reddy, founder of the Hamstech Institute of Fashion and Interior Design which has been part of the city’s corporate culture for decades.

“We mostly play cards, but some of us who aren’t interested end up paying Taboo or Parcheesi. Parcheesi is something we’ve been playing for generations. It’s great fun because it brings everyone together. We argue and laugh a lot,” concludes Kuchipudi exhibitor Yamini Reddy.
