2. Smell of naphthalene balls, when mother unpacks winter garments, is the mark of winter entry.

Of course, these days you can find gaajar ka halwa in sweet shops, paying little heed to which season it is. Yet, there’s something about appreciating this hot and delightful sweet amid winters, am i right?

Finding that the oil melts if you hold the bottle in your palms for 2 minutes or so, was an unadulterated pleasure of our childhood days.
5. Wearing monkey top with a shawl is genuine street fashion.
Say what you will, yet what other place will you find this unique pairing of clothes?
6. Warming water on a stove to take a bath, rather than getting that geyser/heating rod repaired.
We’ll get it fixed next time, pakka.

11. Daadi’s handwoven weaved sweaters are as yet the comfiest and coziest thing in our wardrobe.
A scarf, a couple of gloves, or a sweater, we all still have that one hand-knitted piece of woolens, that we’d never had the heart to throw out.
12. One Tikki of makkhan on everything, consistently.

14. Getting razaayi beaten up great, with the end goal to level the stuffing.
Consistently, before winters begin kicking in, father sends the razaayi for dhunaai. What’s more, we see our generally flat rooms, getting a fly of shading with awesome razaayi covers.
