Pune: Members of housing societies in the city are getting ready to host the annual Diwali parties, but with changes to adjust to the new normal. The parties, which were earlier open to residents’ guests too, would now only involve residents. Moreover, the buffet has been replaced by individual meal boxes and the mandatory mask rule remains firmly in place.
“We had low key celebrations for Ganeshotsav and Navratri but, come Diwali, we will host an informal get-together for residents of our single-building society with all safety and social distancing norms in place. We will have it in the open space. Every year, we have a grand celebration where residents can purchase passes to invite guests too but this year the party is only open to residents,” said the managing committee member of a housing society in NIBM area.
The chairman of another society in Kondhwa said, “We are replacing our annual Diwali dinner with a humble celebration. Each family will get their box of snacks and sweets. We have also collected extra money from our residents to give to security guards, gardeners and cleaning staff. We gave them cash envelopes as it would be useful during this time. We have also planned a game night but participants are encouraged to wear masks and seating will be appropriately distanced.”
