I’m sure many people know about Diwali globally. If you are the ones who don’t, let me tell you Diwali is the grandest festival of India. It is the festival of lights signifying the victory of light over darkness, knowledge over ignorance, good over bad and hope over despair. So, people light up their homes with lanterns, oil lamps, and all those LED bulbs. There are various religious and mythological stories associated with Diwali which you’ll find online. I will be focusing on Diwali now and then.
Unlike many of my other posts, this is an impulsive one because I thought I should talk about this with my readers. Travel is a part of lifestyle today. Professionals usually travel for business purposes or when they take a break from work. Bloggers like me travel for work and pleasure both. While some travel because they have loads of money in their bank account and they probably need to spend it somewhere. Anyways, whatever your reason is, chances are that you do travel at some point in time.
While I certainly love to be a part of the Cherished Blogfest, the biggest challenge for me is to pick that one particular thing that I cherish the most. Most people divide history into B.C. and A.D., for me on a personal level my life history is divided into W.P (With Parents) and A.P. (After Parents). For me, life before 1994-95 was completely different and then everything changed drastically when my parents passed away. I’m not trying to gain an emotional mileage here, but gradually you’ll see my point. I completely understand that all people have to go through this life cycle, so let me quickly jump out of this on to the actual topic.
Life is a struggle and no matter where we are, whatever we become, no matter the amount of money we accumulate, we still have to go through the ups and downs that life mockingly throws at us. The journey of life is always filled with adventures, sorrows and happiness – it’s a complete package, you can’t escape it. Some emerge victoriously, some drown in the abyss of depression and death, the choice is completely ours to make.
NOTE: This is not my regular travel post. This post is for the ‘Cherished Blogfest’.
Life today is fast and hectic, no matter wherever we are. We want to do multiple things at the same time, earn more money, and achieve more fame and so on. Basically, there is no end to our greed. The more we have, the more we want, and we want more because we want more happiness.
However, if we slow down our life a little bit, we begin to find moments and things that give us true happiness – moments that we cherish, things that we hold dearly. Happiness is hidden somewhere inside us, not outside. Probably, we don’t really think of it at present because we are too busy in this weird fast life of ours, but these things that bring us happiness are lying around somewhere in our closet, our basement, our garage and most important of all – in deep crevices of our heart.
This one is definitely not a travel post, but I would request my readers to spare a few minutes and read it.
I never really knew there was a writer in me desperate to share knowledge and information not just among friends, but also across the globe. Although, I’ve been writing offline since my school days, I took up blogging a little late, but I’m glad that I did.
While blogging helped me convey my feelings, emotions, opinions, memories, knowledge and experience, it also helped me receive the same from others and in all that exchange of ideas and words, I started meeting new people that gradually transformed into my friends. It is through blogging that I made friends across the globe, ready to help, encourage, inspire, understand and with whom I can be myself.
