It is Diwali in a few daysDiwali is just around the corner. You probably have a list of things that need to be done - new clothes to be purchased, sweets and savouries to be prepared or bought and the house to be given a good cleaning. You are all set to follow the customs and traditions handed down to you.
But in all this do not forget the underprivileged. There are scores who would go without a meal, even as you burn your money, on the street corner. This year, say no to crackers and donate the money saved, for a worthy cause. Light fewer diyas and donate, to the needy, the money that you would spend on buying 'designer diyas' and oil.
Share your Diwali joy with the poor. Do you want to make a difference?
"We should become prosperous by working hard and then donate generously." – Atharva Veda
