The Festive Hangouts!

India is a land of religions and festivals. Each religion has its own significance and a traditional way of expression. Diwali is one such major festival in the country. Called as the festival of lights, Diwali marks the day when Lord Rama returned to his home city of Ayodhya after spending 14 years in exile. Festival of lights? Is it as simple as - since the entire city had been illuminated to welcome the young Prince back home, or could it be a metaphor with a deeper meaning? Diwali signifies the victory of light over darkness, good over evil, knowledge over ignorance, and hope over despair. Diwali not only brightens up the neighbourhood but also our lives. It is that time of the year when celebrations are the top priority of every household. It’s time for guiltless indulgence in mouth watering sweets, delicious food and bursting crackers. All the relatives, including the cute little cousins and annoying aunties, visit each other to exchange festive greetings. All this cheerful hustle brings along happiness and leaves back memories.
In this blog article, we bring you some of the festive locations, installed with our beautiful cement tiles, within the country to celebrate this Diwali.

The British might have been long gone but the influence of their colonial charm can today be found at the British Brewing Company located in Palladium, Lower Parel. If you have a thing for the lighter hues and tints, patterns made by arrangement of large stones, wooden interiors with just the right use of metal, and designs that are detailed and elegant, then you are sure to fall in love with this place.
