Is it necessary to go for pomp and show during festival time?Festivals are a time to enjoy ourselves with our friends, relatives and neighbours. Those who are religious minded visit the temples and pray to the God on these auspicious occasions for well being and prosperity.
The commercialisation and consumerism has changed the way the people were observing the festivals. People are giving more emphasis on decorations, lighting, costly dresses and other indulgences during the festival time rather then simple socialising and enjoying. Those who can afford are making new bench marks for the gullible people to follow. Pomp and show has become the order of the day.
Do you believe in these show offs and unnecessary showing off of money power during festivals? Is such extravagancy required? What do the members feel about this?
