Diwali is a festival of lights in India. it celebrates the victory of good over evil, with Lord Rama returning to his kingdom after defeating the demons. We light lamps, take oil baths, wear new clothes, burst crackers, exchange gifts and sweetmeats, and pray for happiness and prosperity. Children celebrate with sparklers and coloured fountains, rockets and flares. Women beautify the house with rangoli - symmetrical patterns on the floor drawn with rice flour. Visiting friends and buying gold are part and parcel of the festival. the whole festival spans over 5 days around new moon night during October/November. In some places the festival extends from ten days to two weeks. On this auspicious occasion, I wish all you friends on mylot good health, love, prosperity, happiness and fulfilment. It is Diwali and While we all light our houses today, do spend some time today to light a few lamps inside u and sit in silence with ur eyes closed... Light the first lamp inside u and let it burn your anger and / or jealousy that u may have for any one till date; see it melt away... Light the second lamp and let it burn away unwanted greed and desires... feel happy and contented with what you have been blessed with. Light the third lamp and let it fade away all insecurities that you may have in your mind related to anything or financials; just beleive that God has given u life and he will surely give you enough to survive. Light the 4th lamp and carry that lamp to each part of ur body; let it burn away all your diseased cells or any disease in making. Feel healthy as this lamp travels to each body part and illuminates each organ. The 5th lamp is a miniature of the Sun... nothing but the divine light... light it in the centre of your body and let it fill the warmth and love inside your whole body...feel one with the Divine... let the love and warmth filled inside you ooze out of you through your smile...eyes..speech...and body....carry this love with you through out the day...u will find that everyone who meets you is happy and elated. This is the biggest blessing that whoever meets you becomes happier after meeting you... this will also make you happier in return. Light these 5 lamps each day morning and carry the positivity everywhere. God bless.

Mentioning India, I remembered Bollywood films. With me, I am reminded of the movie called 'three idiots', the film that I considered going back as many times...
