A dark night is celebrated as the brightest, most auspicious night of the year, what more can prove the positive attitude of humankind.
Diwali is not just a day when the share market is at its maximum or brands have the opportunity to complete half of their annual target, but also a time for families.
Diwali is holidays,
Diwali is Laxmi Puja,
Diwali is a time for bonding.
Diwali is excitement.
When I was a child, I could fill at least two pages for an essay describing the joys of Diwali. I would start my day making rangoli and eating sweets while the evening was spent with family and friends, sitting for a Puja for wealth and happiness for my near and dear ones, and lighting fireworks.
Today, Diwali still holds the same excitement. Decorating my home is still my favorite activity but the joy of fireworks has been replaced by the joy of time with my family. Instead of lighting fireworks, we spend time discussing noise pollution and the message of Diwali. We relive the joys of childhood watching the next generation, run around, faces lit up with excitement as the fireworks are lit up.
Diwali is not just a private family affair but also a day with a strong message – a message of hope where light defeats dark, knowledge conquers ignorance. Come let us heed the message of hope on this darkest night and work to become more human, human beings; and may our good deeds shoot up even higher than the share market.
Wishing all of you a very Happy Diwali!
