Light Up Your Diwali with Diyas, Rangoli and Financial Planning
Diwali is just around the corner and like every year, many of us are trying ways of making it special. For example, our friend, Rishi.
Rishi has just received his Diwali bonus and wants to plan a good Diwali gift for his wife. When he took her out for shopping, his wife, Meera, suddenly asked, “Why are you spending so much money on Diwali shopping?”
Rishi comforted her, saying “Oh come on, Meera! The entire year was tough for us, so I just want to make it special for you.” Do you also relate with Rishi? Many of us do!
