Hello all!! It has been long since I posted anything. So, let me tell you a small story today and Happy Diwali!
Why do we celebrate Diwali?
When Lord Ram returned to Ayodhya after fourteen years of banishment with his brother and wife, his arrival was celebrated by lighting diyas by the people of Ayodhya. It was a no moon night and yet the entire place was glowing because of the diyas.
Years later, bombs and crackers are burnt to celebrate Diwali. They not only pollute the environment but also harm many animals. The animals do not like the loud noise and also the atmosphere is filled with unwanted gases which even affect their health. I agree, that the crackers aren’t the only source of pollution but on this auspicious day, let’s not be a reason for pollution. The use of diyas and candles are almost non existent! The very first Diwali was celebrated only by lightning diyas.
This Diwali, many soldiers lost their lives for us to celebrate this festival and many ahead. Not all the heroes wear cape, not all the heroes have fancy costumes, they have uniforms of which they are proud of. This Diwali light candles for the Martyrs who are there on the borders, away from their homes, away from all the celebrations and the sweets and the crackers, so that we can celebrate with our families. A salute to them!
Also, this Diwali, I decided to buy a few things for my family with whatever little I earn. I gifted my mom a rose plant and my sister a few candles that she asked for.
Let me conclude the post by wishing you all a very happy and safe Diwali!!
A Very Happy Diwali to all those who protect us and Happy Diwali to moms!! 🙂
Adios till my next post, welcome to the clan!
Stay safe, stay happy!! 🙂
