Lighting Up the World with Diwali

By Anisa Fathima || Nov 5, 2010

It’s that time of the year when the sky outside my window bursts into myriad colours of sheer joy, when my voice is lost in the resonance of a hundred different sounds – a crescendo from the whiiiiissshhh of the ‘sur-sur kaddi’ to the bang-bang-bang of the bombs. And every time a rocket whizzes into the hazy air, I find myself praying it won’t enter my room.

For me the best part of Diwali has always been the late-night fireworks that some blessed soul in my neighbourhood (I don’t know who) spends on so generously. Come Diwali, and I find myself all ready with my camera trying to capture the splendid scene, and time and again cursing the stupid device for not being competitive enough to do justice to the vibrant display of hues. Red, green, golden, orange, blue…the array of colours put even Govinda to shame.

Being somewhat a chicken and with a pyrophobic kind of enmity with fire, I have been blissfully content with watching the Diwali celebrations from a distance – a big, safe distance, of say, five floors above ground level! Whatever the case, there’s no doubt that Diwali is a very special occasion for all, for many reasons, but mostly for simply the fact that at no other time of the year is the world so beautifully adorned and so colourfully lit as on Diwali.

Diwali lights up India

Press Trust Of India || New Delhi, November 05, 2010

Fireworks lit the sky and houses wore a festive look decorated with earthen lamps, flowers  and multi-colour ‘rangolis’ across India on Diwali which also witnessed bonhomie along the Indo-Pak border where soldiers of the two countries exchanged sweets and dry fruits. It was fun and frolic all around in the festival of lights as children and youth burst crackers and lit fireworks while families visited their neighbours, exchanged ‘Happy Diwali’ greetings and sweets.

Youngsters also took the route of SMS and social networking websites to wish each other.

Diwali or Deepavali (row of lamps), according to Hindu belief, is celebrated to mark the return of Lord Rama to Ayodhya from his exile after vanquishing demon-king Ravana.

The festivities reached a peak in the national capital and other parts of northern India where people decorated their homes and shops with colourful ‘rangolis’, flowers and lightings and lit ‘diyas’ or earthen lamps.

Indian and Pakistani troops deployed along the Line of Control exchanged sweets and dry fruits at Chakan-Da-Bagh crossing point in Poonch district of Jammu and Kashmir.

The RSS has said the Ayodhya title suit judgement of the Allahabad high court offers a flicker of hope this Diwali after 482 years to rebuild the Ram temple at the site.

“The three-member bench in a historic judgment restored the holy Ramjanmabhoomi to Hindus…Hindus have been battling to restore the holy city and rebuild the Sri Ram temple,” Sangh mouthpiece Organiser said in its latest issue.

“This Deepavali, after 482 years, offers a flicker of hope to attain that goal,” it said.

The journal said till the day the judgment was pronounced, it had been a “long wait” for the Hindus who have “fought with abundant faith and unwavering patience..”

But it hastened to add that the matter was far from settled and it might take “many more years” as the title suit went on for six decades.

It claimed that the verdict brings Hindus closer to the final settlement.
