Crackers, blessings & lights galore!
Thinking of what to do this Diwali? The festival of lights sees crowded textile shops and jewellery stores and most people are constantly planning on what to buy next and thinking of how to grandly celebrate the festival.
Diwali, A five-day celebration wherein families get together, friends indulge in merry-making, light lamps and diyas as well as gorge on sweet delicacies and also it foretells of fresh beginnings as we open new checkbooks and diaries as well as clean our homes. Whoever said that after every dark night, comes a new dawn was surely right on the money!
The festival of light, Diwali brings joy and happiness to everyone’s life, but the children of slum and the children who sell stuffs at footpath are unknown and miles away from this happiness. Abject poverty is the main hurdle in celebrating the festival. These children have only despair and darkness even on the occasion of festivals which result into hatred and exasperation in the hearts of these children towards society.
While there are many people who can only dream of a celebration and the festival remains just another regular day where they struggle for basic necessities like food, clothing and shelter.
This Diwali lets spread smiles among those who are less fortunate. #LetsSpreadSmile – An Initiative by Adited Coworking to contribute our bit to building a happier society. This Diwali we will be visiting Child Line NGO, A play school for poor and needy kids.
Child Line, An Indore based NGO and a place where they encourage and support underprivileged children who have no or little access to proper resources for their growth. Currently along with 90+ children they are doing their bit to build a better society.
This will provide lots of happiness to 90+ slum children on the occasion of Diwali. The life of children will be enlightened by getting sweets, toys, fireworks and clothes at Diwali. Their despair will be transformed into pleasure. These slum children will also celebrate the festivals with joy and happiness.
How can you contribute:
1. By being present
2. By sharing your love and interacting with them
3. By giving out eatables and your old books
Hope now you know what exactly you have to do this Diwali. It is a festival of lights, but just by lighting and decorating your own house, you cannot impress Goddess Lakshmiji. Light up other life’s just by sharing some love and happiness.
