What're You Grateful For This Diwali? - #thankyouwalidiwali

Akash Sunny/12th October, 2017

Undoubtedly, Diwali is the most awaited festival of the year and it’s almost here.

It’s when everybody comes out to celebrate and honor the victory of knowledge over ignorance, hope over despair and light over darkness. In short, the victory of Good over Evil.

The festivities involve houses being decorated with candles, lamps and all sorts of colourful lights and huge firework displays are held while families feasts and share gifts.   

It is also traditional for homes to be cleaned and new clothes to be worn at the time of the festival. Its considered auspicious to go out shopping on the first day of Diwali, and the entrances of homes or workplaces are decorated using colorful rangoli designs.

All of us wait for such moments to come into our lives, so that we can cherish it forever. Yes, these are excellent ways of expressing gaiety.

However, is it the only or true meaning of the festival of lights? 

Diwali also marks new beginnings with the New Year (according to the Hindu Calendar),  and some people also choose to resolve any personal discord and familial conflict, to increase love, unity and harmony in and around them. They try to forgive and forget misdeeds of the past and resolve to spend the coming year in peace and purity.

An extremely impactful way to do this is by looking back at the last year with gratitude.

Gratitude for your possessions, for your loved ones, and for life itself. But being grateful - is just a thought without an action.

William Arthur Ward once said - “ Feeling gratitude and not expressing it is like wrapping a present and not giving it."
