Thoughtful celebrations

Most people spend Diwali eating sweets, being with family and of course, bursting crackers. This is the standard ‘procedure' followed during every Diwali celebration.

Doing it differently

Why can't this Diwali be a little different? We could all spend a little less money on ourselves, sacrificing either on clothes or crackers.

With that little extra effort, we could help the underprivileged, by visits or donations. People in old age homes or orphanages don't have anyone to care for them on this wonderful day. Let's make them feel special. Let's celebrate the ‘Festival of Lights' and truly light up someone else's life.
