India is said to be a country of festivals and enthusiasm and zeal of Indians for the celebrations is unique and unmatched in the world. It is often stated that Indians are always in the celebration mood, even the smallest reason prove sufficient stimulant for a grand celebration like a lightest spark for petrol to burn.
The million dollar question is about the reason for the celebration mood of Indians. Look at the word “celebration” it seems pronouncing and sounding with two different words “Cerebral” and “in”. History pages of India reveal a deeply rooted spiritual platform of living by the Indians since centuries and centuries. The spirituality is said to be related with the metal aspect of human beings or in the biological terms with the cerebral part of human body hence so if the spirituality is the life base of Indians than it is natural to be in celebration mood, because celebration is what, that lies in the cerebral part of human body.
Life is speeding up but contrasts to it celebrations have started to shrink and become a thing of time being, even the marriage which is said to be most important celebration of life of Indians had started to shrink under the pressures of tight time schedules. The festival celebrations are slowly but gradually are turning into formalities, birthday and anniversary, happiness and enjoyments are going to fade up in the fumes of alcoholic simulations and high sounded musical sound pollution. Excursions and stay in the nature’s lap are proving insufficient to bring the natural charm of celebrations in the life.
All this is happening just because we are forgetting the presence of celebrations within our self and thinking about the enjoying only few moments of life. In fact celebrations are extended through out the life, every available moment is time to celebrate, and every action is bound to bring enjoyment we just need to recognize the occasion and keep our mood accordingly. There is nothing that can be termed as the moment of sorrow or unpleasant situation, why we are forgetting than every dark cloud is always with a silver line in it. I would like to conclude this with a dialogue from the famous movie “Mukadar Ka Sikandar” of Amitabh Bachan; “Sukh Mein haste ho to dukh mein kahkahe lagayoe” [If you are smiling in comforts start laughing when feeling uncomfortable] this is the true celebration of life and life goes like this.
