Nearly twenty five years ago ( roughly in my fifth standard) when I was standing outside a crackers shop as my father was buying crackers inside the shop on the day before Diwali, I noticed a group of men and women were walking on the road( looked as street vendors I guess) were talking among them as when is Diwali today or tomorrow, actually they were arguing within themselves as some said Diwali today and some said it is tomorrow, a man among them asked to me “child when is Diwali today or tomorrow” I told to him ‘ tomorrow’, they left that place. But this incident didn’t left from my mind, at that age, its very hard for me to believe that there will be peoples in our place who didn’t even knew when is Diwali. It is difficult for me to imagine that there are some peoples who can’t able to celebrate Diwali. From that day every year Diwali is not giving full happiness and satisfaction to me.
Why not Diwali become celebration for everyone. Every year my Diwali wish is everyone who likes to celebrate Diwali has to celebrate it with full enjoyment, still even after twenty five years my wish is not fulfilled. This year also my desire is everyone who wants to celebrate Diwali has to celebrate it with joy and complacency .
