Diwali time is nearing up. But there are no crackers yet.The markets have been very much down and rains are pouring heavily.
Long back, one week before the Diwali festival itself, children used to crack mini-bombs and rockets. The diya’s were cleaned and were lighted up the front steps, the gate and the walls. There were flower pots and hand-sparklers as symbols everywhere. There were new dresses as diwali gifts.
And now, the ban on noise pollution and the high prices with down markets has dampened the mood.
Lets hope this diwali lightens the spirit and boosts it up, removing all the dark shades and lighting the ray of hope!
Happy Diwali! 🙂
