Diwali with a difference

Diwali has arrived.Diwali,the festival of lights,is the much anticipated festival of the year.This is the day on which everything around us gets brighten up with  colourful lights marking
the symbolic welcome of the light of new hope,prosperity and happiness
into our lives.Be it the houses,the streets,the city,the country each and everything  bathes with the shimmers and glimmers.

Diwali,gets its name from diyas.The diyas are the symbol of the new light,
new energy of hope and prosperity in our lives.The flame of the diya,
or the lamp,reminds us that light will ultimately triumph over darkness.
Diwali is all about Weeks of preparation, the fun of
decoration, the excitement of exchanging presents & sweets and finally doing Pooja,bursting crackers.I mean its more about pomp and show.We focus on spending too much on materialistic sources of happiness.It seems showcasing the wealth,spending unneccesary and celebrating the festival with worldly items is all of ours propaganda.

So what are you doing this diwali?Anything special?Anything different?Are you just going to wake up and wait till the sun sets and bring out the big box full of crackers and then light the fireworks and enjoy?Are you just planning to relish the food that your mother cooks for you on the occasion of Diwali?Lets make a difference this Diwali and celebrate this day DIL SE..Lets begin the celebration of life, its enjoyment, its goodness and sharing the same with one and
So this Diwali lets change a bit
and go by the real meaning of
the festival, let’s brighten up some
lives and illuminate faces with brilliant acts of sharing and kindness.Experience the Joy ofGIVING,SHARING,CARING on this Day..

I want to make a difference this diwali.We light up hundreds up diyas and lamps in our houses to devour the misery out of the house and welcome the  happiness.Lets light up a diya of love,compassion and sharing in our hearts for those thousands of under-priviledged people who don't celebrate Diwali with all pomp and grandeur as we do.There are thousands of people whose day of Diwali is no different than an ordinary day.Their lives are chained in povery, misery, lonliness and illness.Why not help them to light up some diyas of happiness and
togetherness in their lives.Lets share our lights with the less-privileged people and bring a smile on their faces.A bit of charity amidst merriment.

Lets redefine lights,noise and flavour this diwali with 

Sparks of BEAUTY
Instead of the sparks of crackers and fireworks,let your inner beauty sparkle
this time.Be beautiful at heart.Lets get out of our homes and reach out to the
people who live in shelter homes,slums,old age homes, orphanages or the beggars on the streets and offer them some gifts and presents or do anything that makes
a difference to their diwali.

Explosion of FLAVOURS
This time there should be explosion of flavours.Flavours of joy and sharing.
Reaching out to people who are alone or suffering from illness or living in
povery and adding flavours of togetherness,help and care in their lives through our small steps and a little charity.Offer them sweets and sweeten their lives with flavour of compassion.

Burst of COLOURS
Bursting crackers isn't a good idea this Diwali.Let there be burst of colours
of merry-making and joy by spreading colours of giving,colours of sharing,colours of love,
colours of caring all around you.Donating money instead of spending it on crackers which eventually lead to sound and air pollution,sharing the food made in your house with the less-privileged

Resonance of LAUGHTER
Laugh and make others laugh with you.No more echos of noisy patakas, let the lauhgter and jolliness resonate in each and everyone's life.
Make someone smile.While we spend thousands of rupees on crackers, there are children in the same city as we live whocannot even buy a candle which costs nothing more than Rs. 5/- 
How about you go and help the poor section of the society? One person cannot make a difference but still, we can just make a few people smile on the occasion of Diwali. Can’t we?

Spend some times with people who are in need celebrate your diwali and make them laugh a little more.

I would say your little deeds and efforts could bring a big difference to 
someomes's Diwali this time.So don't hesitate and inspite of the fumes of
fireworks in the air let there be the fumes of charity in the air.Lets do our
bits. It does not matter if you cannot touch the lives of many on that one day, but let us do something to touch the life of one person through the year, to make him or her a little more  happy. 
It may be like a drop in the ocean but is’nt the ocean made up of a lot of drops?

Wishing you all a very HAPPY,SAFE & PROSPEROUS DEEPAVALI..
