Whole world is busy to say god by to 2006 and welcome 2007. Just think during your celebration planning have you ever thought for the reason behind? In a world, where no action is autonomous, surely every celebration will be with a reason, but who cares? What we usually do, buy new cloths, precious unique gifts, go for outing, enjoy the time with friends and relatives and conveniently forget the event for the rest of the year. All our preparations doesn't seems to sufficient for providing a true pleasure of just few hours as at the end of day most of us feel that some thing was missing from the celebrations. This is happening because presently even our celebrations are slowly and gradually are going to become stress of market demand.
Why the Festivals / Celebrations
Every festival / celebration must have a purpose to make us merry. Hindus, the oldest human race of the earth are with not only religious but also social reason for every festival / celebration. See Diwali [apart from the religious reason] is celebrated to make the houses clean, to get rid of the insects and other ill effects of rainy season. Holi is celebrated to mark the end of winter season. Even our food stuffs related with festivals are having a vision for the health. A lot of Hindu festivals are celebrated during the rainy season, traditionally with fast on the day, this is because during the rainy season chances of water pollution are on the higher side and to protect ill effect of this, there is provision of fasts.
Think for this [For what this is written]
Dear we are in India. A country that pays homage to Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi by his remembrance as the father of nation. The generations of post independence era, saw Bapu in the photographs [in the most he is wearing a Dhoti] but as our present educational system is not generating curiosity for knowing about ancient India hence most of the young ones doesn't know the reason that forces overseas educated lawyer to spent whole life in single cloth Dhoti.
During the visit to Calcutta Gandhi Ji saw few women washing cloth at the bank of river Hugali and all were wearing only sari as the single cloth covering their bodies, At that moment Bapu said "If this is the reality of my country than I have know right to wear a three piece full suit" and from that day he started wearing Dhoti as cloth for his body.
Dear just think for celebrating New Year eve, which is in fact is not even an Indian festival, when you are going to pay a some of thousands for a single Dinner of your family and friends, not even for a second, your mind thinks about every third Indian, who fail to manage even the meal of both times of the day. Just think, if you can save some money from your that celebration and donate that for the deprived people surely you will help the purpose of celebrating Christmas and New Year.
JUST THINK ABOUT IT.
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.
