Dive In

I am hoping to be able to meet my mum after really long. Definitely no firecrackers, I don't think anyone should light any firecrackers. But a lot of diyas, lot of laughter hopefully and lot of positivity.

That’s what Sayani Gupta says in a Diwali ad for Tanishq jewellery—which also features Neena Gupta, Alaya Furniturewala and Nimrat Kaur. But in these fraught times—when many states have banned fireworks due to concerns over Covid—a number of BJP leaders and supporters raged against its “anti-Hindu” message. The result: Tanishq has pulled down yet another ad. We have no words.
