Ghar Wali Diwali


Festival of Light, Festival of newness
Festival of  Diwali, Festival of togetherness.


When I think about Diwali all I can recall is my memories at home at childhood. India is a country with loads of festivals according to region and religion , but Diwali is the only festival which is celebrated in almost all parts of India. 
     The amazing fact about Diwali is that every individual has different approach in celebrating Diwali. For Mother in the family Diwali is Cleaning, Sweets and Snacks Preparation and Shopping.For Father in the family Diwali is about happiness of his kids and wife. For Daughter in the family Diwali is Shopping, Rangoli and Decorations. For Son in the family Diwali is all about crackers and friends.
        Diwali in My home town Maharashtra is celebrated on very large scale. When you see at night every single house is decorated with lights.It feels like every house is accessorized with multicolored neckless of light bulbs and the colorful chandelier with various shapes and designs add gorgeous effect to the decoration. Each house is decorated with beautiful and colorful Rangoli at Entrance at the house. Diwali is not only festival of light but also it is festival of colors :-).
        Diwali is festival of togetherness. In India we give importance to relationship , socialization and bonding. Now a days in our busy life we lose touch with our closed ones, but occasion of Diwali makes us come closer to each other and so this holly occasion plays an important role for strengthening bond of togetherness with our loved once.
        Since Last year I could not celebrate this festival with my Mom & Dad. Whatever I do for Diwali how much I try hard to enjoy their festival It is always incomplete with my Mom, Dad and my Brother Amey. This year also I will be celebrating Diwali at Bangalore and my brother will do it in US and my Mom & Dad will do in Solapur. I will miss how my Dad used to wake us up in early morning , my Mom busy with preparing sweets and snacks , my brother annoying me by spreading my rangoli and scaring me by crackers and me lighting up Diya's and shopping for crackers and clothes. I am going to miss all these things this year. "Diwali without family is like Diwali without lights."
          This Diwali I will celebrate with my new family and with new things which I never did before.My Diwali celebrations this year is not as simple as it was in childhood. I bought new car this Diwali and I am having a Pooja at my office for growth and prosperity of my business and yes I am shifting my office to a new and bigger location this Diwali. See Diwali always brings happiness and prosperity. 

                                        I wish you all happy and prosperous Diwali.
