Mumbai, November 13: This year Diwali is different and we all know it. Celebrating the festival of lights amid the pandemic and by following several safety precautions is difficult. 2020 has not been easy on most of us, from the COVID-19 pandemic striking and the rising infection and death toll to the job losses due to months of lockdown. However, with the economy opening up, people have started seeing hope and the belief has become stronger that 'together we will overcome this phase".

Diwali, as an occasion, is a great opportunity for brands to reach out to their customers. This year too, brands across categories have churned out beautiful ads to spread joy amid the pandemic.
