Diwali is just around the corner and our preparations are in full swing. From cleaning the house to putting colourful lights, diyas and rangoli, we are doing to all to light up the day with happiness and positivity. Alongside, we are also busy meeting friends and family and exchanging gifts and sweets. Exchanging gifts is a tradition that we all follow during Diwali for eons. From clothes and jewellery to home décor elements, we choose different things for different people as per their liking and oisur relationship with them. But what remains the constant is sweets. It's a tradition to add a mithai box along with a gift on Diwali - this means our pantries are always packed with sweets during (and after) the festival. The most common sweet we all witness during this time of the year is soan papdi. We are sure you would be having one right now while reading this article. But ever wondered why soan papdi is so common during Diwali? It is because soan papdi has a longer shelf life, as compared to other mithais.
However, recently, this popular desi mithai made it to the headlines when some internet users started sharing jokes and memes on soan papdi as Diwali gift. Hashtag '#soanpapdi' soon started trending on the micro-blogging site, grabbing all our attention. "Say No to #SoanPapdi this Deepawali. #Boycott #BoycottSoanPapdi," wrote a Twitter user. Another person commented, "Is it too early to start making jokes on #soanpapdi?" A third user took inspiration from a popular dialogue from the Bollywood movie 'Dabangg' and wrote, "#Diwali2022 shopping se Dar nahi lagta saab... #Soanpapdi se lagata hai... Ready for this year passing-the-pass game?"
