AHA DIWALI BAZAAR
Waking up at an ungodly(my grandmother begs to differ) hour of the morning only to be liberally slathered with lukewarm gingelly oil by your elder of choice. Then follows the partially blind( because there’s oil in your eyes) wandering around the house to find that one tiny box of crackers you kept aside just for this specific ritual. Bursting that one chakra with your eyes half open is a memory that goes deep in our minds. Lastly, you have your bath where there are drops of sacrosanct Ganga Jal mixed with your water and finally it’s time to get your new clothes and the most-awaited moment of Deepavali. Deepavali Marundhu in that single betel leaf, so neatly wrapped that not a drop is spilt. The experience as that absolutely spicy Deepavali Marundhu is eaten with gusto only so that you can move on to the real goodies is one we’ve all endured. There are a few who apparently prefer the Marundhu to the actual goodies, they’re probably from Mars but we’re an inclusive world and we let them keep their affinities and with absolute respect.
Deepavali, Diwali, Deepa-oli is a festival that the whole world celebrates together. In India, it is the most celebrated festival without any discrimination. It is a time for rejoicing the change in season as it is the onset of Winter and is in fact, a last Hurrah of sorts, but most of all it is celebration at its grandest, extremely generous and most flamboyant. Diwali means, lights, crackers, new clothes in the latest trends, sweets and savouries in abundance along with being with our loved ones and sharing our love and joy. Diwali is a time to share with our loved ones but most of all with those without as Diwali is all about light and giving. The joy on the faces of our friends in the service sector when presented with Diwali goodies is a sight to behold. Diwali teaches us to share with everyone and especially at a time of celebration that emphasises that important lesson we must always practice.
