Oiled Lamps, Candles, Fairy lights, Rangoli, Brand New Clothes and lots of sweets; this is all we people think when we hear the word “Diwali”. Diwali, also called Deepawali, is one of the most famous and widely celebrated Hindu festivals in India. This is the festival when we light hundreds of candles and oil lamps, adorn your houses with colourful fairy lights, and eat some sapid delicacies. We all have celebrated this holy festival in conventional way, this Diwali, celebrate Diwali in different style – be a reason of someone smiles.
Instead of spending hours bursting crackers and playing, spend some time with the people who are less fortunate to spend Diwali the way we celebrate. Search for some orphanage or any NGO and spend some time there. You can donate your clothes, accessories, and other useful material. It may be one of the ways to Diwali for you, but for them it could mean a whole world.
