This Deepavali (Diwali) is different. This Deepavali is not about whether I have prepared a variety of goodies to eat, it is not about whether we have that perfect ethnic attire and jewellery for the occasion, it is not about money that you would be spending on shopping, it is not about having a grand vacation at an exotic location, it is not even about the score of your golf game……
This Deepavali is more about Survival. It is about being grateful that we are still able to breathe and be alive for this day. It is about being thankful for the love and care from our loved ones, It about being with the family under one roof and spending time together, It is about lighting a Deepam (Diya) for all those dear and near souls who left us.
It is about extending support and spreading cheer to family and friends who have lost their loved ones. It is about spreading happiness to those who have suffered losses in jobs and businesses.
This Deepavali is more about being hopeful, for a healthy & happy tomorrow. Stay safe. 🙏🏻🙏🏻🙏🏻
