Diwali 2016: how to make it specialIf we go deep into the roots of celebrating Diwali then it is the celebration of a son coming back home after 14 years. If you are leaving away from home then the best Diwali gift you can have for your family is a well planned trip to either home or some other suitable spot (I will prefer home as Diwali is best celebrated at own home but if you want to try some vacation island then you can choose that as well).
We should try to use crackers to a limit as minimum as possible. Look for the initiative from the Government. I think government should put a limit on crackers and must integrate available options like Aadhar Card, Ration Card or Voter Card even with crackers selling. There must be a limit set for each of the card and people must buy crackers within the specified limits only. Excessive crackers impact nature in a bad manner and we should avoid them as much as we can.
We should stay away for ill things like drinking, playing cards etc on such pious day. I believe it is something that is not supposed to discuss and you already know it. It can be best Diwali gift (if you were doing any such ill thing till last Diwali) if you stop doing any of these ill activities. Go ahead and try, believe me nothing will be better than this.
Prepare yourself, your home and your surroundings for Diwali. Please clean your surroundings and home properly. This is the way we can pour our part in Sawachha Bharta campaign (Clean India) also.
Make sure to buy sweets and other edible things from trusted stores only. Do not go for cheap sweats rather buy trusted sweets only (even if they are bit costlier than usual).
