The festive season has begun, but with time, the way to celebrate festivals has also changed. The deadly COVID-19 virus and the issue of rising pollution are playing significant roles in the new ways to celebrate a festival. Celebrity couple Preeti Jhangiani and film ‘Khosla Ka Ghosla’ fame actor Parvin Dabas also opened up on these changes and shared that they are teaching their kids new ways of celebrating Dussehra and Diwali. The couple, proud parents of two kids, also feel that the kids must know the basic essence of these festivals. In an interview, actress Preeti Jhangiani said, ‘For us, festivals are all about teaching our kids what they are all about and their relevance. What Dussehra is about and the relevance of the day. Our younger one has hardly any idea about festivals, so we use the time to teach him about and make him aware.’ On the other hand, her actor-hubby Parvin advocated for the environment-friendly celebration of festivals. He said, ‘With the pollution aspect now, we tend to find things which are more environmentally friendly and can be done with kids. Of course, it gets a bit restricted. But we want to teach them the right way to celebrate festivals and show them that there are other ways of having fun and celebrating the spirit of the day.’ Opening up on their plans to celebrate the festival this year, Preeti said, ‘There are not going to be big parties like previous years, but small intimate ones’. On this, her hubby further added that ‘People are getting more careful about being vaccinated and hanging out with only those who are fully vaccinated, so that’s the way forward. In the end, this festive season we are hoping that the mood is much better. We just want to be happy again. People want to be positive about things.’ Preeti and Parvin got married in the year 2008 and have two sons together, 10-year-old Jaiveer and Dev, who recently turned 6 this year.
