Deepavali Wishes

Deepavali (Diwali) is always a much awaited festival in most parts of India. A time for celebration and and most of all, sharing. I still remember the lovely gesture our from a nearby sweet shop owner from the time when I was going to school. He gave our family a huge box of sweets as a Diwali present. Much has changed from those times. Diwali, now, is more commercial, even a bit more mechanical. Because people shop so often now-a-days, even the Diwali shopping seems more of a chore to many. Since I noticed and experienced this a few years ago, I made it a point this year to save my purchases for Diwali – just to bring some of the magic back. And yes, I think the wait makes it so much more fulfilling. Sometimes the little things matter so much more than we think!

Here’s wishing everyone a peaceful and prosperous Deepavali.

    Here wishing you have a Deepavali which brings back the joy the shopkeeper gifted you back then 🙂

    Festivals are of the people, by the people and for the people – as long as that feeling remains, even with one another person, no amount of commerce can dilute the joy.

    Celebrate it among the people who care for you and you, in turn, care for….that’s the magic of a festival.

    Happy Diwali VM.

    I agree with Soul, if we manage to feel the happiness associated with every festival, no complexity can ever dilute the festive joy.

    Happy Diwali once again !
