Does any wonderful occasion in India go by without eating sweets? Specifically laddoo? A mesmerizing ball shaped sweet made from the combination of ghee, gram flour, sugar, dry fruit on top and loads of love and best wishes.

We thought of the major times when we all get to eat laddoos and trust us we did not have to think much.

1. Prashaad laddoo

Even our dieties adore them and how! Ask anyone in India what prashaad they are offering to God? Laddoo!

2. A baby is born in my aunt's sister's uncle's grandson's cousin's family!

Births come with instructions of eating laddoos no matter how far or how near the relation is!

3. Rakshabandhan hai ji! Eid hai ji! Diwali hai ji!

Where are the laddoos?

No festival, we repeat, no festival in India is complete without laddoos being offered and eaten joyously.

4. Marriage is synonymous with laddoos

Rishta pakka (we became families!)- laddoo!

Engagement- laddoo!

Boy drops in for a surprise visit, gets laddoos, is fed- laddoos!

Wedding functions begin- Get 10 kg laddoos

Wedding- laddoos everywhere

And the funniest thing- after the laddoos get over, people still keep craving for more.

We won't even care whether to know the chap has actually cleared the exams or not, what percentage he got, whether he is happy or not, we just ask, laddoo kahan hain (where are the laddoos)!

Haven't you seen English Vinglish? Laddoos were, are and will always remain a big deal in Bollywood!

8. School habits!

Remember how we were given laddoos in small packets on Republic Day? Damn! Those were the real days. March past and speeches never felt boring just for the sake of the glimpse of this wonderful delight that used to be distributed later.

9. Yes! The elections after all!

9. Yes! The elections after all!

How can someone not remember this? Election results bankrupt the sweets shop and all you see is laddoos everywhere, colonies, cities, head offices, TVs, everywhere. The politicians are seen distributing, sharing and gobbling up tons of laddoos!

So now tell us. How willing are you to sign a petition to make laddoo the national food of India? Do comment! ;)
