For Arpan Tiwari, a Diwali trip home from Singapore turned out to be a nightmarish experience as this was when he was laid off from his job at Meta in Singapore. The human resource (HR) professional is among the thousands of people who were laid off by the social media giant in its global job cuts last month.

Tiwari is yet to inform is parents about his job loss.

“I don’t want to tell them because they will feel bad, maybe more stressed at this age,” he told Moneycontrol.

“Maybe once I figure out a new job, I’ll tell them. But again, seeing their faces every day, having a conversation with them, you have to just fake it. That’s the most painful part.”
