On the occasion of Eid, the author shared a picture of a meal and wrote about how her late grandmother Betty Kapadia would always treat her to "delicious kichda and decorated envelopes." Twinkle, who lost her grandmother in December 2019, shared bittersweet memories in her note and wrote: "We rarely made biryani on Eid. Our treat was always Nani's delicious kichda and decorated envelopes with our Eidi. This year, our hearts and our table have too many empty spaces without her to fill it all up. Eid Mubarak."
