Diwali 2023: Celebrating the festival by spreading love and embracing togetherness

Diwali, the festival of light, is celebrated each year to mark the triumph of light over darkness and good over evil. 

It is a festival not limited by culture, religion, or country. Today, we set aside our differences and pray for universal peace and prosperity. 

The festival is celebrated by lighting diyas, making rangolis outside houses, and of course with bursting crackers. 

The diyas that we light resemble the hope and prayers of joy and happiness of our and also others. 

The rangolis made at the doors of the houses are a symbol that today we set aside our differences and everyone, even our enemy, is welcome to celebrate the festival of lights with us.

The lighting of firecrackers, even though wasn't a part of the original Diwali tradition, has evolved to become the message of joy. We burst crackers with our neighbors, without keeping in mind their class, caste, sex, or race. When we light a rocket, and it bursts into the skies, it symbolizes that the person lighting it is asking for love and peace.

Today, especially among teenagers, Diwali is left as a chance to burn crackers freely and without Government prohibition. It is wrong. The festival of Diwali is much more than burning crackers. Its message and teachings could help humanity prosper together as a family. 

So, now quickly pick up a box of sweets and proceed to the door of your neighbors. Knock on the Door and wish, "Happy Diwali!" while praying for their everlasting happiness and prosperity. If your neighbor is of a different religion, it doesn't matter, hand the box with the same kindness and greet them with utmost respect if they are elders.
