We celebrate 🎊 Diwali πŸͺ” with so much colour, light, illumination, decoration, joy and cracking fire πŸ”₯. Diwali πŸͺ” is a celebration 🎊 of life and living. But I wonder, how much of this joy percolates to everyone in the society ? Is Diwali soothing the pain of poverty, marginalisation, ostracisation, and decimation of dreams ? When we are enjoying our moments of illumination, is it illuminating someone’s darkness of despair?

Let us dedicate our celebration πŸŽ‰ of Diwali πŸͺ” as lightening up the dreams amidst despair. Let us share our moments of happiness with someone who is in need of a human touch, a human support, a human smile, a human gift πŸ’. Let us light our own heart with a dazzling empathy that lightens the lives of many to remember Diwali as a celebration of human kindness

Imagine a rich country donating a huge sum to a poor country as a debt free financial package wrapped with the love ❀️ of Diwali πŸͺ”. What a gesture it will show to the world 🌍 in form of being so rich in empathy and kindness, richer than being rich in materialistic wealth. When we could reach that state of celebrating Diwali πŸͺ”, the true meaning of Diwali πŸͺ” will be deciphered

Let us zero-set our negativity on the day of Diwali πŸͺ”. Let us forgive and forget. Let us start afresh with a new turf of love and compassion, tolerance and understanding, giving and contributing, soothing and supporting

Happy Diwali πŸͺ” to all my friends here

Hari Om
