Diwali-how it increases bonding among relatives

Come Diwali, nobody is at office or school. It's that time of the year when we become children again, reaching out for that place where we have grown up and had memorable Diwali year after year. It doesn't matter how old we grow up. Our elders will still treat us as children of the house. Even we ourselves feel that we have been transported through a time machine to our youth evoking emotions of nostalgia. Family and Diwali, rhyming as they are, go hand in hand. At this time of the year, if you are alone it is assumed that either you have no family or you are estranged from them. People for whom it is impossible to reach their families, celebrate with friends and neighbours which in the Indian community culture are close to being a family.

Diwali Celebrations

Presents along with boxes of sweets are exchanged in between friends and relatives on Diwali, In the morning the skillful ladies and kids will make rangoli designs in front of the house and inside the house. Then the whole family gathers in the hall for the puja. The leading lady performs the aarti on behalf of the entire family. It is usually done by the eldest married woman but she may choose to give that responsibility either to one of her daughters or daughters-in-law. After the ceremony, the family proceeds to burn fire crackers. Adults keep an eye on the children as dealing with fire can be dangerous. The womenfolk make variety of dishes and entertain the guests. After some time, the entire family visit their neighbors and exchanges gifts. Then they sit together and have a grand feast with traditional sweets as dessert. The next day is celebrated as govardhan puja. Everybody has to get up before sunrise and take a bath. The following day Hindus celebrate bhaidooj. This day belongs to all brothers and sisters. They exchange Diwali Cards, gifts and have a meal together expressing their affection for each other in the process. With this Diwali comes to an end in most part of India. The children are allowed to burn the leftover crackers. The emotions are on full display when time comes to bid goodbye. Diwali passes away in the blink of an eye. People catch trains, bus or flights which are full to the brim with people returning from their native places.

      May this Diwali bring us enough light to see,

      that knowledge is useless without imagination,

      that true knowledge is the knowledge of our own ignorance,

      that it is better to light a candle than curse the darkness.

      that prosperity of kindness and decency is more important than prosperity of economy,

      that even after the sun is gone, our inner light can shall guide us all,

      Wish you all a very Happy Diwali.
