Diwali: Festival of Light and Celebration

Embracing the richness of all religious festivals as a family, we hold the belief that the divine is one, accessible through the Quran, Bhagavad Gita, Bible, or any sacred text. The supreme power, unbound by preconceptions, dwells within every heart.

Festivals are really a glory to families, not only a festival of joy for the rich and middle class, but also for the poor. This war-cry is similar to those of these shared respondents: Hindus celebrate the triumph as the festival of lights that’s Diwali. That time has arrived to mark the victory of the good over the bad. Let us continue the same 'true' spirit with the belief with every light that is sparked on the day, success and satisfaction will be attained. The moment when Lord Rama destroyed the evil force is what Diwali is. The time, when it was proved that true love is the most powerful weapon in the world.

Many of the issues we face often trace back to our attitudes and behaviors. During Diwali, it's noticeable that, after 10:00 pm, people in densely populated areas refrain from setting off loud fireworks. While there are laws in place to regulate this, they can sometimes be ignored. However, such instances are becoming less frequent, thanks to campaigns discouraging firework usage during Diwali, raising awareness about environmental concerns, and encouraging people to adopt eco-friendly practices. This shift reflects a growing commitment to a more sustainable and responsible celebration of the festival.

Before Diwali, people remove, renew, and decorate their houses and authorities. Within Diwali, people attire up at original dresses or their greatest outfits, bright up diyas (lamps and candles) inside and outside the house, enter at family puja (prayers) to Lakshmi — the goddess of prosperity, light fireworks.

The significance of Diya lighting (lamps and candles) reveals purity, goodness, good luck, and strength. The emergence of light means that darkness and sinful powers are non-existent. From the time when, on the new moon day, Diwali is celebrated when ultimate darkness is everywhere; people light millions of lamps to free themselves from darkness. In contrast, the Divine of the Almighty; by lighting the lamps, loveliness is spread all throughout house.

There is indeed a divine history to the lovely and vibrant rangolis that we notice in places. It was used in prehistoric days for spiritual reasons. Designs are transmitted from one generation to the next, keeping alive both the art form and the culture. The objective of rangoli is to feel energy, generosity, and good luck is set to bring. At the entrance of a home, the purpose a rangoli is drawn is because of its calming impact on a guest who is about to enter the house. It manifests itself into sensation.

This time is a blessing from the almighty to all living beings to cherish lives contentedly.

Happy Diwali!
