As an Indian student, you will be surely aware that ‘Diwali ki Safai’ is much different from your everyday regular cleaning. Your version of this while staying away from home can be cleaning out your closet, collecting old shoes, clothes, bags or any other college things that you don’t use, clearing up your study space and setting up your room for decoration. This process is even more enjoyable when done with your roomie. Even though our PGs have regular housekeeping services, cleaning out your personal space can help you relax and get started for the festivities.
One of the most effective ways to get into a celebratory mood is by decorating the space you live in with your roomie. Think flowers, fairy lights, candles and other decors that can spruce up your room for the festive season. Once done, you and your roomie can also click a few aesthetic pictures for your Insta-feed and even invite your other college friends or PG mates over.
While staying away from home for work or studies, your wardrobe might not be in the best of conditions to attend festivities in your workspace or college. Heading for a shopping spree with your roomie is just the right answer for it. If you are living in one of our safe PGs in Bangalore for females, you will have easy access to various street markets and malls to stock up on ethnic clothes, jewellery and other accessories.
As you and your roomie go about cleaning up for festivities, you are sure to collect a few old clothes, books, shoes or accessories that you don’t need anymore. Instead of discarding them, you can collect them all up and send them to any charitable organization in your area, cause nothing spreads festive cheer better than helping people in need.
From card games to board games, there are plenty of ways to have a fun time with your friends. To make the event even more fun, you can decide on a theme such as a Bollywood night or Halloween night. Simply bring in some snacks and play the evening away to spread the festivities around. Hosting your buddies will make your festive experience away from home even more wholesome.
Almost all cities in India, especially metropolitans such as Bangalore, Delhi and Mumbai have several events that celebrate the festive season. From shopping pop-ups to Garba nights and Diwali Melas, you can find plenty of exciting events to attend with your roommates. These events usually tend to take place over the weekends so you won’t even be missing out on your study schedule.
As you get ready to head home for Diwali, you and your roommate get together to create some cute handmade gifts for your family. Be it cards, paintings or any other decorative item, you can easily find inspiration on Pinterest or Instagram. The activity is sure to transport you to your school days when you had to dig into your creativity for the arts and crafts period.
Living away from home, especially during the festive season can be a difficult task especially when you have just moved out. But it is a part of ‘adulting’ and you might as well take it in stride. Make the most of your time by indulging in the above activities with your roommates.
