Diwali is the festival of Joy!!! It is our version of the 'Joy of giving week'.
People often believe that during Diwali showcasing kilometer long LED Lights on their balcony or bursting firecrackers made by our brothers in China bring a smile to others, but is that so? Is this the true reason for celebrating Diwali?
Think of this, we all meet many people in a day: 1. Our labourers; 2. Coblers who sit under a tree in our neighborhood; 3. That fellow who fills petrol in our vehicles; 4. Kids who sell toys at traffic signals; 5. A tailor who stitches our clothing; 6. A barber who cuts our hair; 7. Our daily roadside vegetable vendors; 8. People who sweep our society; 9. People who collect our trash...
The list isn't ending, is it? Now just imagine if from beginning tomorrow, we carry small boxes of chocolate, mithai, sweets etc. (These boxes of condiments would cost a fraction of the LED's or box of Crackers) in our cars / under the trunks of our bikes and distribute these sweets to these people and various others as we come across them.
Not only will it bring a smile to their tired faces but it will also give us a sense of Joy from within that we will truly relish because gifting a box of chocolate to a poor person has more power then 100 Kilowatts of Electricity.
Coming to crackers or as i may call 'phatakas', its about time that we take a step forward to be with or (this one is for the bachelors) date one ;) rather than burst a phataka and who knows you might even find your dilwali this Diwali! 😎
Let us uplift the ones around us along with us 😃 May this Diwali bring Joy to you and everyone around you too, is all that I wish. 😇😃 -Leo Jash Dalia
