In India, sweets are such a big deal during festivals and thankfully so. As we grew up, we may not have understood why we celebrated a particular festival, but we surely recalled every one of them with the sweet or savoury associated with it. Deepavali was an assortment of everything from laddoos to kaju katlis and pakoras. Ganesh Chaturthi was synonymous with modaks. Pongal had both the sweet and savoury versions of its namesake dish. Lohri was incomplete without til ke laddoo. These sweets were a symbol of celebration, a nice gift to exchange and a signifier of prosperity and familial bonding.
Design Thinking and Research
Once we had decided we were designing a new home for kaju katlis, we went into research mode. We found out that these sweets were sold in the markets in traditional cardboard boxes with butter paper on top. Once people consumed the sweets, the boxes were discarded. And considering the number of sweets we consume as a nation, that’s a lot of boxes we are talking about!
