Festive seasons are one of the most mesmerizing moments of life. People can still get nostalgic for their favourite memories. And all of them are the best.
But most famous and globally celebrated is the Diwali festival of lights.
Though crackers and their noise irritate at day time, but at dusk, everything seems magical. Numerous Floating Diya and earthen Diya decorated at every visible corner of houses, temples and even on river footsteps. Everything appears to delight the eyes with the elegance of the shimmering glow of crackers and diyas and even solacing paper lanterns.
And PS: In my dream world, there are limited crackers with limited smoke creation and illuminating Decorative LED lights for Diwali.
Here, COVID-19 is just the new normal(a dime a dozen) in the present.
But what we have to take care of, is how we can make it memorable. Right?
We already know that Diwali is celebrated all over the world as it’s a symbol of victory of good over evil.
Lord Rama killed demon Ravana, rescued Mata Sita and came back to his kingdom Ayodhya from 14 years of vanvas(exile).
In South India people also celebrate a day before Diwali as Naraka Chaturdashi as Lord Krishna’s consort Satyabhama killed a demon Narakasura, saving thousands of girls’ lives from his captivity.
Where in East India, Diwali is under the alias of Kali Pooja honouring Goddess Durga’s fierce avatar known as Kali Ma.
Every year Diwali date changes affirming all kinds of divine life changes.
As winter is getting near to La Nina, there is a fear of a second cold wave of Corona.
So due to that, some states have officially banned firecrackers and multiple group meetings, also divine places are not allowed to visit without permissions. Firecrackers cause smoke that increases a large number of COVID-19 attacks and can result in increased chances of its second wave.
Even I too demand banning crackers to have the luminous and safest Diwali.
So what can we do instead of bursting crackers?
For the best of both worlds, here’s the list:
- If you want to spread light, spread by donating it to needy ones.
- Try sky lanterns
- Create havoc and noise, but only with your family games(What’s On The Cards).
- Light up your world with Diya decoration at home
- Fill your mouth with luscious homemade sweets and recipes.
- Participate in Laxmi Pooja by becoming one of the pujaris.
- Throw a party for your best people.
Every religion celebrates it with joy.
Rules to be followed:
- Those who lit firecrackers should wash hands instead of using sanitizers(it contains alcohol so it can catch fire easily and you can harm yourself).
- Don’t buy sweets outside so you can avoid virus attack and infection. Instead, make homemade eatables like old times.
- Social distancing and wearing a mask all the time shouldn’t be avoided.
- No multiple gatherings.
