Sweets are synonymous with Diwali.

It wouldn’t be Diwali without sweets. That’s the experience of sweets seller Romila Vikashni, 45.

Mrs Vikashmi sells Diwali sweets for Prakash Sweets.

She has been doing this for the last 10 years and she loves it because she is reminded of the spirit of Diwali.

She has a bean cart at the Nausori Market.

The Chand family makes sweets and she sells them.

Ms Vikashni said she had a lot of customers including iTaukei customers.

“Some iTaukei families have already placed their orders for this Diwali,” she said.

She sells packs full of a variety of sweets with prices ranging between $5 and $10.

She claims that she attracts more customers because of the quality and taste of her sweets.

She said that she had just received two orders from a school in Nausori and they were ready for collection. “More orders will come next week.”

Her customers, she said, include market vendors, school teachers, bank staff and even taxi drivers.

Her family is looking forward to this year’s Diwali celebration.

Ms Vikashni is wishing all Fijians a happy and sweet Diwali.

Diwali in Fiji is on Sunday, October 27, and the Diwali public holiday is on Monday, October 28.
