What makes Diwali so special? For once, it brings back lots of memories of yore! Crackers, sweets, bonhomie and celebration lasting over days! Secondly, notwithstanding the degree of gloominess, the most sagging of spirits get uplifted during Diwali. Even in the worst of recessionary periods like the current financial year, somehow Diwali brings hope and happiness. All the disruptions of the recent past seem to have been gotten over such is the the impact of Diwali. To put it in poetry:
When the darkness paves way for light,
And depravation and destitution are overwhelmed by hope;
There are no short cuts and there are no quick fixes,
Festival of Lights is no ordinary occasion but really an effective dope!!!
Happy and prosperous Diwali to all those who matter to me!!!
