Diwali 

diwali 1

With Diwali comes gifts. Choosing a Diwali gift is not easy, and specially if it’s meant for family. Our closed circle or often referred to as our safe circle. Inspired by jargons like “think outside the box”. I literally applied this into practice. No boxes ! Not that I was saving but I genuinely wanted to gift each one something unique .

One of a kind , customised and suited to each member in the family. A gift that was eco friendly hence would not cause pollution. A gift that would not only save the environment(air,water and noise) but also save relations and would be cherished forever. I wanted it to be thoughtful , not randomly selected at a store. Something beyond the purchasing power of money.

A gift more sweeter than the sugar laden sweets and saltier than the fried savouries. A gift that not only tantalize the taste buds but tantalize the minds.A gift that would not grow out of fashion or be unproductive with the change in size.

 
A gift which would have a part of me in it . A gift meant for life. A gift capable of lighting up hearts and shunning the darkness of human monsters called ego, jealousy and hatred. A gift with no sound, but more noisy  than fire crackers. More importantly a gift that would  fill up the hearts of the receiver and make them grin from ear to ear . A gift as warm as a cup of tea , as soft as a marshmallow and as priceless as a smile .

I am sure this has got you wearing your thinking caps. Well no prizes for guessing it right I found solace in personal letters. Yes I wrote letters to all my family members one for each and left them by their bed side in the night two days back .

Now the question is what did I write ? Good habits , inspiring incidents, special qualities found place in my letters. Including positive gestures, conversations and  special moments made it interesting. I served them a plate of  love , spiced with emotions. In short I wanted each to feel special, loved and wanted (no criminal offence though).This was my way of showering them with gratitude and affection.Thanking them for what they are, who they are and why they are. Appreciating and respecting relations.

We all crave to hear good about ourselves don’t we? ( check on Facebook likes and comments). By writing letters , I have attempted to satiate this craving  by recognising each soul  for their selfless contributions in our family. Count on me when I say that this has bought insane happiness to me.The following morning was blessed with joy.Each one was wearing a badge of pride and a smile which refused to die.

Happy Diwali.

Happiness and sunshine 🙂
