It is that time of the year when one plans to make it to the home town to spend a couple of days with the family and celebrate Diwali the festival of lights together and enjoy family companionship. In the recent past Diwali holidays are also being utilized as the best time for a family holiday somewhere away from regular life.
The business district of the city has been kept busy for over a week now with people shopping for clothes, groceries, decorative lamps, gifts and of course clothes.
This time new shopping address arent many, Isha Wedding Mall and Ridhi mega mall both stores for readymade garments and sarees are new in town.
Diwali Lanterns of different sizes and shapes are in the market and most of them are Chinese. The original or ancient octagonal lamp made of bamboo sticks is hardly seen and the cost of one ranges anywhere from Rs.150 to 600.
Making fort replicas is again a work the kids love to make and many make huge replicas of Fort during Diwali time. Kids love this and even the older ones try and relive their childhood helping their children built the fort.
We would suggest not to use those high sound making crackers and if possible have a pollution free Diwali.
Diwali is the time of lighting lamps and spreading the light of happiness. But we all do this with our own relatives and friends, but how about spreading the same amongst the not so privileged ones to the likes of people in the old age homes, Orphanages, Blind schools and so on. See NGO list here.
At the end have a safe and Happy Diwali! May your life be filled with colors and joy.
