Post-Diwali updates


So Diwali has come and gone. Unfortunately, the weight we have gained has not.

Just in case any of you were wondering what “Diwali” means, it’s from the Sanskrit and it translates to “Festival of Carbohydrates”.

What’s the difference between “Deepavali” and “Diwali”, you may ask.

Simple – “Deepavali” means “Day of Obesity”, while “Diwali” means “Festival of Carbohydrates”.

Both terms are related to the occasion and hence, interchangeable.
