Diwali !!!

            476th BLOG -->>


       It's Diwali everywhere right now. Its 10 PM on the eve of Diwali and I am loving the environment all around. Enthusiasm running in everyone's approach towards the festival of lights and celebration is endless and ineffable. The liberty people get on the day of Diwali is incredible and people don't miss the opportunity to explore the naughtiness and childishness they have in them. All the uncles run behind crackers-Anaar and chakri like a 6 yrs old boy. The excitement in the eyes of a small baby who is still to start walking is interminable. The overloaded Golden colour all around adds to the beauty of metro cities like Mumbai in the evening. I, from my heart, wants to wish all of you prosperity, luck, growth, success, good health and satisfaction on this beautiful festival of Diwali. 


             Diwali is the biggest festival for Indians and Hindus. The shopkeepers wait for the people to attack on them for the Mega Shopping of the year. The three festivals which really moves the whole India are Diwali, Eid and Christmas. India has grown up quite fast in last few years and people have stopped discriminating each other on the basis of religions. Now, I can see all the religions coming together to celebrate each other's festival. On the occasion of Eid this year, I visited every Muslim friend's house and tried to contribute to their festival and share my part. On Diwali, I invite all the friends to my house to have snacks. This time I haven't invited anyone because we are keeping a light celebration as we lost a member of our family- my dear chachaji who was the youngest and the ambitious of all. 


             This time I am happy with Diwali. The people from my society celebrated Diwali with light crackers from 8 to 9.30 and all were back home after that. They didn't created any kind of nuisance. They didn't added any kind of danger to the already disturbed planet. Everyone is shouting to be eco-friendly while celebrating Diwali but these are the same people who are in the market to purchase crackers. But, at least, my society- my premises where I live participated to be eco-friendly and disciplined and I am too much happy with it. I have stopped celebrating Diwali from last 5 years with crackers from the time I came to know the drawbacks of bursting crackers. And let me tell you all, Diwali means "Row of Diyas" and not "Bursting of Crackers". So, lighten the planet as much as you can by putting up as much diyas as you can but don't burst crackers just to be ostentatious. I hope you are understanding what my concern is. 


            Thanks. in the end, Happy Diwali to all. May God bless you and your family.
