Festival of Lights – Diwali

Diwali or Diwali is the biggest and most important holiday in India.

The festival gets its name from the row (avali) of clay lamps (deepa) that Indians light in front of their homes to symbolize the inner light that protects them from spiritual darkness. This festival is as important to Hindus as Christmas is to Christians.

Diwali observance varies by region and tradition. The most widespread practice among Hindus is to light a diya (a small ceramic lamp filled with oil) on the night of the new moon to invite the presence of Lakshmi, the goddess of wealth. In Bengal, Goddess Kali is worshiped.

In northern India, the festival also celebrates the return of Rama (along with Sita, Lakshmana, and Hanuman) to the city of Ayodhya after defeating Ravana, the ten-headed demon king, and thus celebrates the festival. It is associated with the holiday of Dussehra. In South India, the festival commemorates Krishna’s victory over Narakasura. Some people celebrate Diwali to commemorate the marriage of Lakshmi and Vishnu, while others celebrate it as Lakshmi’s birthday.

During festivals, diyas are lined up along the parapets of temples and houses and floated in rivers and streams. The houses are decorated and the floors inside and out are covered with colored rice, sand, or rangoli made of intricate patterns of flower petals. The doors and windows of the houses are left open in the hope that Lakshmi will find a way out and bring wealth and success to the inhabitants.

Festival of Lights

The festival which gives you happiness,

Keeps you cheerful and away from unhappiness,

Doing good works this time,

As it’s not at all any crime.

Festive of spending money in shopping,

For men, it could be little shocking,

As the numbers in a card, numbers are falling,

Nothing can keep them in a state of calming & calming. 

Hoping that this festival can bring happiness,

And will remove all the unhappiness,

Just try not to be in a mess,

As you’re not good in a chess.

Everyone likes this festival,

Due to excessive sweets, our stomach becomes indigestible,

For every festival we should be respectable,

As you’ll not be regrettable.

Today I’m going to share an incident that happened to me. As I was writing on Diwali, this incident is also related to Diwali itself. So without any delay, I’ll start my incident.

Once during Diwali, I went to the market with my family to do some shopping. Everyone seemed to be happy and was enjoying the festival, and were smiling. So as I was going to a shop, a poor woman stopped me and asked for some money. I wasn’t having money, just a water bottle, so I’d given that to her.

I’ve already seen that a child with her means her son, was also present there. So I thought of him, and have given my water bottle to her. Later when my parents came from the shop, at first my father was very angry with me, that’s why you gave the water bottle to her, all this was happening in front of everyone. 

There was another poor woman, and she immediately called that poor woman, and she came running, said sorry, and also returned the water bottle. By seeing this, my father’s anger was gone and he was a bit normal. When that poor woman was leaving, he’d given her some money, and also gave money to the poor people who were present there.

It was really a pleasant and true feeling which came inside us and also we’ve done such a good thing through which God will be happy for us but we haven’t thought about this at any time, it just came into our mind, and never thought about these all, just have done our work and after that got this point in our mind. 

This really gave me happiness and I was feeling proud that today I’ve helped a poor guy, because nowadays, in this world, no one respects them and always wants to keep a distance from them, but we haven’t done that as we weren’t having those qualities inside us. At last, we reached home and everyone in our family was happy and was feeling good that we’d helped a needy person.

Thank you readers for providing the time to read my this blog. Hope you all have learned something and will try to be good to people who are poor, so don’t ignore them as they’re also a part of our world. They too need some respect and also love so please don’t ignore them or be angry with them, because they can also help you at some times when no one will be there with you to help you. Thank you!!!
