Diwali or Deepavali

On 30th October the Hindu celebration of Diwali starts. For 5 days The Festival of Light celebrates good overcoming evil.
I’m known for not holding any religious faith as I believe that many of the problems this world has had or still has, come from the divisions religion cause. I’d rather see mankind come together as one, keeping their beliefs personal, and strive to live together in peace and love.

This particular celebration seems to transcend religion and it seems the whole of India comes together to celebrate as one. Each year people of all communities welcome new hope into their lives through this festival, negative forces are believed to be removed from one’s home and one’s life. Very often the home is painted in attractive colours but each corner is lit up to dispel shadows.

Wouldn’t it be good if we too could join in and dispel the shadows from our lives and shine some light and bring fresh hope? I never get tired of the idea that maybe hope will eventually lead to something more. The granting of our wish of Peace between us all recognised by those who send our children off to fight and die for the control of oil.

I send Hugs to all my friends known and unknown and hope you remember the joy a hug can bring to others. To all my friends who will celebrate Diwali I say…..
May this diwali light up new dreams, Fresh hopes, everything bright & beautiful and fill your days with surprises.
Happy Diwali 2016 !!

    Nice feel, David, especially as some of us during those days mark All Saints day and visit the graves of our loved ones on 1 November, bring light to them as they keep bringing it to us through memories – may the light of peace and unity shine over us all at the same time.
