Festive season is one of the much-awaited time period every year. This season is marked by shopping for new things, getting to meet near and dear ones and endless binges of good food. The sweet scent of flowers fills the air, as does the aroma of freshly made gulab jamun being dipped in sugar syrup. Diwali is not just the festival of lights - it marks new beginnings for people living all over the country. Apart from festive celebrations, the one thing that the Indian workforce eagerly looks forward to is the annual Diwali bonus.
For the unversed, Diwali bonus refers to a monetary incentive that companies in India offer to employees on occasion of it being the festive season. Employers gift all sorts of Diwali gifts, from crockery and table ware to sweets and dry fruits.
