Diwali: the essence

   Diwali, from its literal meaning, explains a festival of  'diyas' or lights. The modern context, however is bound to be changed since our streets are no more without street light 'provisions'. And we don't need diyas to welcome Sri Ram. LED torched would do a great job instead.

   People must understand basic things and the motive of making your next generations to follow those customs. They wanted it to remain a legend so that people who do right would have strength and courage to do so. That surely is not the case anymore.
   Today, lightening the roads and paths is not the priority. The priority is to enlighten people on their foolish behavior. To abolish those people from religion who do no good to people and instead harass them. The religions are dead now, Justice has to be fought for and initiatives for any good deeds are not dared for.
    Instead of lighting a 'diya' or candle, help someone to enlighten their lives. There are many for whom the system is no good. Help them not burn a candle just for the sake of it.

"Holiness is in right action, and courage on behalf of those who cannot defend themselves. "

" When you stand before God, you cannot say, "But I was told by others to do thus," or that virtue was not convenient at the time."

- Kingdom of Heaven

Happy Diwali to all.

May a live a prosperous and 'lightening' life...
