Happy Dipavali

Dipavali…. In India itself various regions different mythological stories associated which culminate and we celebrate Dipavali… or the best way to quote it is celebrated the victory of good over evil.

As soon I and many of us hear Dipavali, a broad smile is supposed to pass on everybody face, the first and foremost things that come to mind are, new Clothes, Fire crackers, Sweets (all sort of sweets) Dipavali lamps and Diyas, specially the earthen one, and fun time with families and friends.

The one we kept on the passage stairs.
Back during our school time, I guess every year till 7th standard we were to write essay about Dipavali and in our craft and drawing classes we were asked to prepared Dipavali lamp and were asked to make sure we put them at our house

Suring our childhood we used to eagerly wait for the Dipavali vacation (3 weeks) those were amazing fun time with friend, I remember we used to help prepare Killa (usually children’s build replica of forts or castle in memory of ‘Shivaji Maharaj’ as the great warriors happen to capture his first fort (Torna Fort) at the age of 16, back them itself he had amazing guerilla warfare techniques)

As we grow older we happen to stand at the other end and gaze children’s preparing those forts.
Diya: the one we lit at the entrance door
This year’s Dipavali is very silent as compared to last year, as last year I was in Pune and had great time, this time I am away from home, but last week while doing India grocery, I happen to buy those earther Diya’s which I had lit up, when all light are turnoff, and the light spread by DIYA’s is enough to engulf the darkness, that the simple message we have to inherit, and make sure that small Diya spread enough light and we find the way in our life.

So on this note: Happy Dipavali, have a bright Diwali not a noisy one.
