How We Celebrate Diwali Festival In Unique Way

1. Diwali is most beautiful when it is celebrated with family members. Specially with your elders. When you celebrate diwali with them it gives a sense of love and caring. Call all your relative on this occasion your sister in laws, his childrens, brother in law and all. Therefore come together in this occasion however you are situated.

2.Try to decorate your home in some unique way. Experiment with pillows and bed sheets from banares , Rajasthan and Gujarat. It will give authentic look to your house and some desi(indian) also.

3. Do experiment with your walls. Make traditional designs of Indian villages like cows, people and temples. You can try it one wall of any room. At least it gives some idea to you.

4.If you have separate altar for lord, then you can decorate it with jumaor from gujrat and traditional design from south india or rajasthan.Your deities can put on new pitamber(clothes worn by lord) clothes from Mathura and Vrindavan.This way when you decorate the lord altar ,it will increase your attachement for lord which is the sole purpose of celebrating these festival.

5. As I have mentioned above ,Diwali is celebrated because lord rama came after 14 years of exile.We do all the things in diwali making sweet, play firework except remembering the lord. Therefore do read valmiki ramayan on this day and watch ramanad sagar ramayan serial. It will make good effect on your childrens mind and they will know that why we celebrate diwali.

6 Wear unique attire on this big festival. Gents can wear a dhoti kurta on this occasion.It will be eye catching among your friends. It will give Indian look to you also.Cotton and jute Dhoti kurta are considered best.

7. Ladies and young girls can wear lehenga choli or salwar kameez or saree designed by your local desiger or by some like Rajendra pratap singh or satyapaul. Best way to try gujrati,rajasthani,banarsi or south Indian saree,salwar kameez.I am mentioning these states frequently because these states have varieties in design with traditional Indian look which other states lack.

8.Eco friendly firework are best for environment. By buying this you contribute to conserve the nature. In fact it is not necessary to use firework. It actually disturbs the birds that can’t bear the loud sound of firework.
