Diwali With Maids

Nithya Shanti

My Mother Invited Our Domestic Help's Family To Diwali Dinner And Started A Tradition

Inspired by her friends, my mother started a new tradition in our home last night. She invited the family of our maid Madina to come home for dinner. She had earlier sent dad and me off to buy all the groceries and special food was prepared for them. We all ate together and had a lovely conversation as well. It was also a humbling experience for me and made me realise anew what a privileged life we lead.
