The reminicents of Diwali festivalDiwali festival is now over and people are asking each other how was it and the general answer is that it was very enjoyable and very exciting to celebrate the festival with lights, delicious dishes and the thrill of firecrackers.
Yesterday evening, the atmosphere was calm and subdued and it was the usual silence after such festivals when I thought to have a stroll near my house in an open area where usually children play cricket on holidays. I saw a few people walking on the sides and the open area was almost empty except a few children at the far side of the field. They were searching something and collecting it. In my curiosity I just walked in that direction and found that there were 5 boys in the age group 8-12 years and were in their half pants and dirty T-shirts. They looked from the nearby slums.
It seemed that there was a big Diwali celebration in that part of the field and a lot of firecrackers were used but still some of the intact ones were lying scattered here and there. For these boys they were as good as new and I saw that they have already collected a handful of them.
There faces were shining with some sort of accomplishment as they were now ready to celebrate Diwali albeit at a later date.
I perceived it as the reminiscent of the Diwali festival and thought to share it with members here.
