You are not alone in your resistance against sweets this Diwali. Check out this video for some instant inspiration!

“No…no…no, I don’t want any mithai. I’m dieting you know. All this excess sugar can cause fat storage in my body, and my body is my temple. Where did you get these sweets from anyway? Haldishyam! Wow! That’s a really good place. Amazing sweets. What kind of sweets did you get? Rasmalai, kaju katli, besan ladoo and gulab jamun too. Huh, nice yaar. You know, I think I’ll have a tiny bite just to keep your heart. Hmmmmm…nice ladoo. You know what, I’ll take a teeny tiny bite of every sweet. Ab Diwali hai, itna toh chalta hai. “

5 minutes later...

“Arey, besan laddo ka ek or dabba le ke aa!”

That is how the Rasmalai rumbles. (Probably the next day in your stomach)

Avoiding sweets during Diwali is like Australian batsmen batting on Indian pitches. You can’t just sweep it off. You have to persevere through those sweet googly attacks for five full days. And many of us bend the knee to sensuous sweets soaked in ghee.

But one brave man stood tall in the face of extreme mithai menace and cemented his place in history. Check out his epic battle in this special Diwali video by ICICI Lombard!
