The sky was a riot of colours at the Chadha residence with all the guests singing and dancing to the tune of Punjabi tracks.

“2020 was a tough year for all. Though it took a lot from us, it taught us the true meaning of togetherness and selflessness. We welcome 2021 with positivity and festivals and what better than the first festival of the year Lohri and Makar Sankranti. Just like the pandemic got us together, it is time we celebrate the festivals and strengthen our bond” says Gurpreet Kaur Chadha.
