There are lightings all around the place
With different shapes & designs..
People are filled with joy, smiles all around, some with reasons & some
times without… After years I have attended the puja in our community….
It was something like a scheduled
activity which was supposed to happen
People gathered in the evening, children
performed, prize distribution for the
at competition that took place in the
morning, drama, a music performance..
As we celebrated diwali in a conventional way, there was somewhat
different celebration crematorium
on the Pune-Mumbai highway. The best
way to celebrate the festival by
raising voice against superstitions !!!!
The anti superstition activists, and local
working group of dalits gathered
and recited poems, songs to dispel the
myths about the crematorium and
Amavasya… The programme, called “amavsyevhya pavitra ratri- smashanat
kavi sammelan”, organised by
Maharashtra Andhasjtaddha Nirmulan
The entry was free, about 20 artists
from different parts of Pune. It
was attended by 500 people… I found
this to be a great initiative which
will strive to end evil from the society,
a real objective behind all religion
This will perhaps make this puja and
religious gatherings and festival
more accessible, because everyone
is equally entitle to enjoy and
celebrate festivals !!!
Loads of love and wishes …
