02 Nov For Diwali – A Thought…
You would be surely going to shop right? You will buy new clothes, get some firecrackers, make or buy sweets, clean up your house, and enjoy the festivity and the joyous atmosphere. Wouldn’t you? We all would.
I have a request to make.
When you shop and come back avoid talking about your purchases in the ric/taxi in which you travel. The driver will feel bad because he can’t buy the same for his kids.
When you burst firecrackers, give some to your watchman so he can give it to his kids. You don’t need so many anyway.
When you ask your maid to clean the house stand besides her and help her with her work, she will be cleaning two houses this Diwali.
When you make some sweets give it to the kachra vala who come to your house, so he may have something nice to hold for a change.
We will surely have a Happy and a Prosperous Diwali, there are other people less fortunate than us, who won’t. Don’t make them feel that. Include them in your love.
This Diwali don’t just increase Diabeties, pollution and your credit card bills.
Sharing this wonderful thought that came to me from my friend Deepak Grover.
