Diwali being one of the most vastly celebrated festivals in India. For all you who don’t know what Diwali is, here’s a little info:
Diwali is a Hindu festival of lights, which is celebrated every autumn in the northern hemisphere. One of the most popular festivals of Hinduism, Diwali symbolises the spiritual “victory of light over darkness, good over evil and knowledge over ignorance.”
We all group along with friends, family and loved ones to celebrate this Festival Of Lights with rituals, traditions, fun, burning crackers & food.
Burning crackers? Good or bad? Yaay or Nay?
I was in the same dilemma whether to burn them and have fun or be a responsible citizen, avoid pollution and say NO to it. Which is also why I didn’t burn crackers anytime again after my class 10. But this year, I got my hands on a few and decided to have a little fun.
Because I learnt the art of “Everything in Life needs to have a balance”. Be it anything, balance always leads to harmony. I repeat, ALWAYS!
We are a planet with issues rising up every day from some or the other part of the world. Being irresponsible towards our own planet, usage of plastic, dumping dirt, dangerous gases released from Air Conditioners & Refrigerators for that matter cause a lot of harm to Mother Earth.
By now we are all aware of the causes & effects. Like they say anything that we’re used to doing from long stretch is hard to give up instantly. But we can always start to slow them down, reduce it gradually & then achieve the goals. It’s time to take a step reducing, then a full Zero!
This Diwali let us all take an oath of taking up different initiatives to make Earth a better place. It’s never possible for One to do it all, but One is a good number to begin with. So let’s show some love towards our very own planet & Mother Nature who give us SO much abundantly. Let’s give back the Love! To people & the Planet!
Avoiding plastic to the maximum level & reducing the usage of Air Conditioner is my initiative! What’s yours?
Also I haven’t burnt crackers in years now, but due to some itch in my inner child, I did it a little bit this year but in an extremely little quantity. Conceptualised a few frames around the theme of Diwali for the shoot and I just had to! Guilty A little but it’s highly satisfying to have achieved what was exactly on my mind with the help of an AMAZING photographer ! My #DreamTeam for the win!
Whatever has happened, happened for the good
“Whatever is happening, is also for the good
Whatever will happen, shall happen for the good
What have you lost that you cry for?
What did you bring, that you’ve lost?
What did you create that was destroyed?
What you’ve taken has been from here!
What you gave has been given here!
What belongs to you today, belonged to someone else yesterday and will be someone else’s tomorrow.
Change is The law of the Universe.”
Be a kind soul. Spread good vibes Only. Make mistakes, learn & grow faster. Love fully & Live fully. Stay Awesome as ever!
Save planet. Do not harm animals.
Wish you all a Wonderful, prosperous & safe Diwali.
