Does anybody of you celebrate or participate in Diwali celebrations with your Indian friends?
I simply got this doubt. Do you partake in the celebrations just like most Indians do during Christmas or New Year celebrations? Today is Diwali (It is actually Deepavali meaning a line or row of lights). So, I wish you all "A happy Diwali".
This is my wife during 1990s, placing lights on the Rangoli prepared by her on the occasion of Deepavali.
I used to, Bro.
Very much so. I onced lived in Southall (A mostly Indian community here in London, UK) Now I just work and apart from Poetry readings and meditation, I mostly come home. Sad, eh?
Not so long ago, you chided me for not being so grounded (smile). Maybe you're right. I'm left with the memories, which is indeed beautiful, and I still hear the firecrackers some 3 - 4 miles away. In fact, Halloween is near too; so while one is night and the other Light, they both have this in common.
Haven't read the piece on your wife yet, but have done some of the blogs and commented. In Southall there are whites too, and some Indians do have white friends, so yes, some of them celebrate also.
Good to see the picture of your wife. I'm reminded of an aphorism of Guruji's that some Hubbers found striking and related to. Kind of like whatever happens has its own reason and even if we cannot see this, There is a larger plan. Just paraphrasing. Don't remember without looking.
Still, this should not have any bearing on the fact that we loved, love and care. Just a passing mention, that's all. I'm touched by seeing her in a state of Joy, Light and Beauty. Jai Ram!!
Thank you, Manatita. I know that you are always associated with and enjoy the company of all people of any religion or race. So, actually, I didn't keep you in my purview when I posted this question. But, this answer of yours is a much pleasing one.
I celebrated privately, but also will celebrate tonight at the mandir with many Indians of Caribbean ancestry.
Greetings and blessings. I don't celebrate Christmas these days, or Easter. The traditional concepts don't mean anything to me, nor the commercialism that prevails. It's sad, because the good times were when my folks were still alive. They cared for us as kids.
Do keep up those traditions and ceremonies which mean so much to your Heart of Hearts.
